‘It hurts, it’s extremely painful’ Davido reacts as A/court upholds Oyetola’s victory


Popular musician, Davido has reacted to the ruling of Appeal Court sitting in Abuja which affirmed Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of last year’s gubernatorial election in Osun State after setting aside the judgement of the tribunal which earlier declared Senator Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner.

In his reaction shortly after the judgement, Davido, who is nephew to the PDP candidate in the election, said he is certain of victory in the Supreme court.


He said: “My people. We can’t 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. Everyone remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm in this time.

“As you all know there is one last and most important lap. It is time for that last lap and the God I know and serve is in control.

“We won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain the Highest Court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment! Everybody stay calm and stay safe! See you on the other side.”
