Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the March 9 election in Oyo State Adebayo Adelabu on Wednesday says he is approaching the Supreme Court to Validate his victory.

He expressed optimism of getting favourable judgement at the Supreme Court against the declared victory of the incumbent, Engineer Seyi Makinde.

Adelabu in a release said the tone of judgment given by the Election Appeal Tribunal has rekindled his hope in both the electoral and judicial processes.

As the Governorship candidate of the APC, Adelabu had challenged the victory of Governor Seyi Makinde and asked the Tribunal to declare that INEC erred by declaring Makinde as winner and that the election did not comply with the electoral act.
