The singer made this known on his Instagram page, saying he could not hide his disappointment following the ruling which was not in favour of his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“My people, we cannot hide our disappointment. This judgment of the Court of Appeal. It hurts, it’s extremely painful, but guess what? It is not the end. Far from it,” he wrote.

But Davido, Concise News understands, is confident that his uncle would laugh last.

“Everyone, remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm at this time. As you all know, there is one last and important lap,” he added.

“It is time for the last lap and the God I know and serve is in control.”

“We have won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain that the highest court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment.

“Everyone stay calm and stay safe! See you at the Supreme court.”

The appellate court, sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, overturned the judgment of the election tribunal that declared Adeleke winner of the election.
