See reactions gathered below:

@mightyvoicee: “There’s nothing to worry about for Adeleke here. Same happened in 2018 when Oyetola lost to Adeleke at tribunal. But Oyetola later won at the Supreme court. It will repeat itself again now, Adeleke will win at the appeal & Supreme court.This is the people’s victory. IMOLE 💡

@IbkSports: “Adeleke will get a fair judgement from the Supreme Court. Make Oyetola go sit down.”

@Donchukskelvin2: “It happens in Imo State so I’m not surprised hearing it again. This is Nigeria.”

@Emmanomics: “No be Tribunal again.. Adeleke go nowhere.. He(Adeleke) was once declared winner of the previous Election by Tribunal but the then Governor did give in to Tribunal and he rule for years. What happened? We are in Nigeria and History is about to repeat herself in favour of Adeleke.”

@TheresaTekenah: “Good. The dancing man should go jare.”

@skophidman: “Adeleke is still the Governor of Osun State and I can assure you that after the Appeal and Supreme Court judgment, he will remain the governor till 2026.”

@Lanr07: “When PDP or any other party wins, the election is free and fair but should APC win, it is rigged or the court is compromised.”

@Grace_Orente: “What kind of rubbish is this? Make Oyetola go sit down. People didn’t choose him. They chose Adeleke. Shey na by force ni?”

@dan4matic: “Well, I think Adeleke already knows what to do, go to court. PETER OBI did it in Anambra & was victorious. Except if he’s unsure of his stands.”

@call_me_or ale: “Adeleke went from “almost” in 2018, to “a little bit” in 2022. 2026 is another time for him to try again.”

@MissRozapepper: “Oyetola should just give up. The little respect he is still earning as an Ex-governor can last him for years. Do not let Adeleke and the good people of Osun state send you to Political oblivion.”
