Osun decides 2018: APC breaks silence on inconclusive election

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the stalemate following Saturday’s Osun governorship election in Osun State.

The party hailed the Osun Electoratendependent National Electoral Commission (OSEINEC), security agencies and relevant stakeholders over the conduct.

Its spokesman, Yekini Nabena, in a statement Sunday night, said while we the nation continues to improve on electoral processes and correcting some irregularities witnessed in the poll, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration deserved commendation for continually exhibiting commitment to ensuring that elections are more peaceful, transparent, credible and acceptable.

He added: “This is a departure from the situation under past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administrations where the people’s will was subverted and elections where manipulated. We hereby reject the PDP’s baseless calls that the inconclusive Osun governorship election is announced in its favour.

“In the lead up to the rerun election, we call on the Osun electorate, party supporters and members to remain upbeat and focused on the task of consolidating on the APC Change administration in the state by voting for the victory of our candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.”

Aside Oyetola, other candidates were Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, and Fatai Akinade Akinbade of the African Democratic Congress, ADC.
