The Osun State gubernatorial election may have come and gone, but the All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said that the party’s victory in the Osun governorship election shows that democracy is at work in the country.
He made this statement this after receiving the outgoing governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola, and the newly elected state governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola at his Resident in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress was declared as the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission at the end of Thursday’s re-run in seven wards.
He polled a total of 255,505 votes to defeat his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who polled 255,023 votes.
Tinubu said that the people of Osun exercised their rights and chose the best candidate to drive development in the state.
The former Lagos State governor, however, urged the people of Osun State to encourage and give maximum support to Oyetola.
