“Delay will only sweeten the taste of victory – Reps Member reacted

The Election Petition Tribunal, sitting in Osogbo, on Monday, has nullified the election of Hon Bamidele Salam, who represents Ede Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The tribunal cancelled elections in some units across four local government areas as a result of over-voting.

The Election Petition Tribunal ordered rerun in twelve (12) units of Ede North/Ede South/Egbedore/Ejigbo Federal Constituency

In his reaction on the judgement,  Hon. Bamidele Salam reassured his supporters to remain calm as the minor setback will only sweeten the taste of victory in their mouths.

According to him, “the Tribunal has stated their position which clearly does not align with mood of our people who voted wholeheartedly for me as their Representative.”

“We are not dismayed however, because the mandate as freely given to me by the people and stamped by God, cannot be stolen by any man. Our victory at the February 23 House of Representatives poll is sacrosanct and this minor setback will only sweeten the taste of victory in our mouths.”

“My legal team will study the details of this judgment and decide the necessary course of action on it. We are focused and will not lose sight of the goals we have set for service delivery to our constituents”, he concluded.
