Obas Adekunle, OSOGBO

An Aspirant of OSUN State House of Assembly,  Osogbo State constituency, on the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC), Aremo Gboyegba Lateef, has congratulated  OSUN Governor-Elect, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, for winning the keenly contested governorship election in the State.

In a statement issued after the declaration of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Friday, Lateef described it was a well-deserved victory.

According to him, the people of Osun had made a choice to vote for continuity and experience, which he believes Oyetola represents.

He congratulated the APC for yet another victory, saying it was a confirmation that the people still have confidence in the programme and policies of the party not only in Osun but also across the country.

The Aspirant in his congratulatory message also congratulated Governor Rauf Aregbesola, The Deputy Governor-Elect, Benedict Adegboyega, the APC and commended the people of Osun State for comporting themselves during the exercise, noting that despite the inconclusive election on September 22, voters defied the heavy downpour to come out en masse to exercise their franchise during the supplementary election.

“The election has been deservedly won. The good people of Osun have chosen quality continuity over uncertainty.

“Gratitude to Osun people for supporting the ruling party’s good governance agenda by re-electing the APC. APC will continue to work for the progress and prosperity of the state at all level of government,” he said.

Oyetola was declared as governor-elect by INEC at the end of Thursday’s supplementary election in seven wards, polling a total of 255,505 votes to defeat his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke, who scored 255,023 votes.
