OSUN: APC’s victory shows democracy at work — Tinubu says


OSUN: APC’s victory shows democracy at work — Tinubu says




The national leader of the All
Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, says the party’s victory in
the Osun governorship election shows that democracy is at work in the
country.





Tinubu said this after he received the
state governor, Rauf Aregbesola; and the governor-elect, Alhaji Gboyega
Oyetola, at his residence in Ikoyi, Lagos on Friday evening.





The News Agency of Nigeria reports
that Oyetola was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral
Commission at the end of Thursday’s re-run election in seven polling
centres.





He polled a total of 255,505 votes to
defeat his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,
Ademola Adeleke, who polled 255,023 votes.





Tinubu said the people of the state exercised their rights and chose the best candidate to drive development in the state.





He said, ”The people of Osun
demonstrated their strong determination. They have good judgment. They
exercised their rights to choose the best candidate necessary for
developmental programmes in the state.





“When you look at those who were
running, you have the best, the most brilliant, the most qualified,
competent, calm and a great candidate.





“That is what they have done to show that democracy is at work.





“Democracy is about the people, and the
people have equally exercised their right to be tolerant, patient,
persevere and do what is necessary to develop the economy of the state.





“In leadership, you need a thinker and a
doer that must be present in the mind, body and soul; that person who
will carry the responsibility of the state and I feel that Oyetola fits
perfectly.”





Tinubu urged the people of the state to encourage and give their maximum support to Oyetola.





On the APC presidential primary, the
party’s national leader said the huge support from party faithful in
Lagos State was a signal that the party would emerge victorious in 2019.





The Lagos State Governor,  Akinwunmi
Ambode; and  a former Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Musiliu
Obanikoro, were also on the ground during the visit.
