OsunDecides: Oyetola Emerges As APC Governorship Candidate With 222,169 Votes

Following the All Progressive Congress, APC, primary election that took place in Osun state over the weekend, the sitting governor of the state, Adegboyega Oyetola, has been reelected as the governorship candidate in the party, ahead of the governorship election coming up in the state later this year.

According to reports, Oyetola emerged with a total vote of 222,169, against his contender, Moshood Adeoti, with a total vote of 12,921, while  Mr. Lasun Yusuf had 460 votes.

 Accepting the victory, Oyetola stated, “Today’s victory is made possible by members of our great party, who gave us another opportunity to face the people of Osun to seek re-election. The outcome of this primary election is a victory for our party and members, who have spoken loudly through their votes.”

He noted, “It is a victory for our people who trooped out in large numbers during our strategic tour of the state to inform them of our intention to seek a second term. It is a restatement of their confidence in our development agenda, which hope delivered in 2018 and performance sealed in 2022. It is evidence of their belief in sustainable development, which we brought into governance and preached every inch of the way.”

He maintained, “I thank you all our party members for your constant support, and especially for speaking eloquently with your massive votes in favour of our administration’s restoration and consolidation agenda.”

He made it known, “With this primary election now concluded, I invite us all to rededicate ourselves and the party to deliver an overwhelming victory at the gubernatorial polls to be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022. For me, we are all winners. I, therefore, extend my hand of fellowship to the other two aspirants to join me as we prepare for the July election. We are all brothers. Let’s join hands to build the state of our dream.”

He added, “Let us close ranks and eschew bitterness in whatever form. Therefore, may I use this opportunity to also ask all our aggrieved members to have a rethink and join hands with us to further strengthen our party and deliver outstanding results at the gubernatorial poll.”
