As Supreme Court gives its judgment on the Osun State governorship election today, both the All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party are concluding various spiritual interventions to have a favourable verdict.
Since notice of the judgment was made available to the parties in the matter, both the APC and the PDP had been organising prayer sessions.
Apart from the political parties that were preparing for the day, it was also observed that corps members in the state did not attend their weekly Community Development Service meetings on Thursday, a development not unconnected with the panic heralding the judgment.
When contacted on why the weekly corps members meetings were cancelled, the Public Relations Officer, National Youth Service Corps in the state, Funmi Okundaye, said the meeting were cancelled “for security reasons.”
Findings by our correspondent showed that shortly after the judgment date was made public, PDP members had embarked on 21 days fast and prayers.
Besides, an internal memo circulated among members of the party sighted by The Punch also revealed that members had begun a seven-day praise-singing starting from Friday, June 28.
