Speaking on the victory, Mrs Dupe Adeleke-Sanni, Adeleke’s elder sister, commended the judiciary for retrieving the “stolen mandate.”

Adeleke-Sanni, who said she dedicated the victory to God and his late brother Mr Isiaka Adeleke, said the victory was well-deserved.

“We thank God for returning our stolen mandate.
