The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, has rejected the tribunal verdict which nullified his election, alleging that it was purchased.
Adeyeye in reaction to the tribunal verdict, however, said he would appeal the judgement.
He said, “The judgement of the tribunal today (Tuesday) is not short of open robbery and a direct assault on the integrity of the Nigerian judiciary.
“The whole world knows that the Senatorial election of February 23rd was the freest and fairest in the history of our state.
“No doubt the judgement was purchased. And upon proper scrutiny the filthy lucre that influenced it will be revealed.
“The judges shamelessly contradicted themselves throughout the judgement.
“They went to great lengths to reach a conclusion that did not follow from the premise with jaundiced and twisted logic.
“I have instructed my lawyers to immediately proceed on appeal. And by the grace of almighty God, we shall have justice.
“Meanwhile I will remain focused on my duty to my constituents and the Nation. We shall prevail.”
