Osun Rerun: Our hope is on God, not individuals’ — PDP


Osun Rerun: Our hope is on God, not individuals’ — PDP





The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is confident that
God will grant the party victory in the Osun state governorship rerun
election scheduled for Thursday.




During the first ballot
conducted on Saturday, Ademola Adeleke, the party’s candidate, polled
majority vote of 254,698 while Isiaka Oyetola, candidate of the APC, had
254,345 votes, leaving a margin of 353.



The Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared the poll inconclusive and fixed
a rerun election in polling units where votes were cancelled.



Addressing
journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Eddy Olafeso, PDP national
vice-chairman (south-west), said the party has already won the
supplementary election.



“For us, we are very confident that victory will be ours tomorrow. We already won anyway,” he said.

On
the outcome of the meeting with Iyiola Omisore, candidate of the Social
Democratic Party (SDP) in the election, Olafeso said the party is
hoping on God, not individuals.



“We met with the leaders but
victory is in the hands of God… even if people play around, God will not
play around. He’ll determine the outcome of the election,” he said.



Accusing the APC of taking the state backwards, he appealed to the people to support his party.

“What
is on ground is clear to all: eight years of total profligacy in Osun
state. We will continue to speak with leaders, some of them will listen
to us while some will do their own thing,” he said.



“PDP is not
bothered because our people are resolute. And they are desirous in
ensuring that the victory denied us on Saturday will eventually be ours.



“We
have spoken to our people and we are certain that their experience from
the current administration is enough for the need for a change that
will bring development to the nation.”
