In a statement released by the spokesperson of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, the ruling party says it is satisfied with the conduct of the last Saturday, September 22nd governorship election in Osun state.
The party said although the election results have been declared inconclusive by INEC, the election generally was a departure from the type conducted during the PDP administrations where “people’s will were subverted and elections were manipulated”.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) hail the Osun electorate; Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); security agencies and relevant stakeholders over the conduct of Saturday’s inconclusive governorship election in the state which was largely peaceful despite some reported irregularities.
While we continue to improve on our electoral processes, particularly correcting some irregularities witnessed in Saturday’s election, the APC commends the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration which has continually exhibited it’s commitment to ensuring that elections are more peaceful, transparent, credible and acceptable
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 rejected the PDP’s baseless calls that the inconclusive Osun governorship election is announced in its favor.
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.
