Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Olorogun Festus Keyamo has dismissed as unwise the celebration by the opposition arising from the Supreme Court decision on the governorship election in Osun State that upheld the use of the BVAS machine in the election.

Noting that their celebration by the opposition that the same principle would be used to overturn the presidential election results as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Keyamo said that they would be surprised.

He, however, did not give the basis of his confidence in a statement he posted on his Twitter Hanlde.

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar as lauding the judgment of the Supreme Court on Osun over the decision to uphold the use of the BVAS.

Keyamo who was spokesman of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu during the election said:

“Those celebrating the decision of the Supreme Court today in the Osun Governorship contest are naturally the members of the PDP. I congratulate them. They have been joined by the members of their Siamese twins, the LP.

“Anything against APC, for them, is victory for the Rule of Law. I also congratulate them. However, they have not even stopped for a minute in their euphoria to reflect on the principles enunciated by the Supreme Court today as it affects the tenability of results obtained by BVAS to prove over voting and how it affects their pending Presidential Election Petitions that will go before the same Supreme Court in a few months’ time.

“The Supreme Court has set a precedent today that can be a two-edged sword and when I reflected on it, I just chuckled. Please, pin this tweet somewhere awaiting the final decision of the Presidential Election cases. I say no more.”
