The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended 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.
The APC according to a statement signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena also commended the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration which according to him has continually exhibited its 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 reject the PDP’s baseless calls that the inconclusive Osun governorship election is announced in its favour.
“In the leadup 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” APC added
Nabena was optimistic that the country would continue to improve on her electoral processes, particularly correcting some irregularities witnessed in last Saturday’s election in Osun state.
