The lawmaker representing Oluyole Federal Constituency of Oyo State, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, on Saturday, dedicated Friday’s court victory to the people of her constituency.
Akande-Sadipe won against Hon. Olugbemi Sunbo, a former Representative of the constituency.
Rep. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe won the ticket to the party on 27th May 2022.
On the 22nd of June, an action was filed by Olugbemi Samson, asking the Presiding Judge, Hon. Justice Uche Nma Agomoh to invalidate the Primaries that declared Tolulope Akande-Sadipe as the winner.
The Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan dismissed the case against the victory of Rep Tolulope Akande-Sadipe.
Reacting to the judgment, Akande-Sadipe thanked delegates who decided to give her another opportunity to fly the APC flag during next year’s election.
She promised more quality representation, adding that her gratitude goes to members of her constituency who stood by her.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to represent you, and I promise to always put the needs of our community first. Together, we can make a positive difference and create a brighter future for all. This is not my Mandate it is your Mandate given to me and I am honored”.
“I am grateful for the community that has stood by me, believing in my vision and supporting my candidacy for the upcoming general election. Your unwavering support has meant the world to me and has been a source of strength and inspiration throughout this journey.
She vowed to keep inspiring women, and never to give up on their dreams, even when faced with adversities.
“I want to inspire all women to never give up on their dreams, even when faced with adversity. We are strong, capable, and deserving of equal opportunities in politics and in all aspects of life. Let us continue to fight for our rights and to shatter the glass ceiling”, she said.
She equally appealed to aggrieved members of the party in her constituency, to put the past behind them and work for the Party’s victory in 2023.
“This is the time to put all wounds behind us and forge together as one to raise our party up for victory across our State and the Nation”
