Osun APC Primary: Why Oyetola Defeated Aregbesola’s Candidate Adeoti – Tinubu



Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has given reason why Governor Adegboyega Oyetola defeated Moshood Adeoti in last Saturday’s APC governorship primary in Osun.

Adeoti was the candidate of Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola at the primary election.

Tinubu, in a statement on Monday by his media aide commended Oyetola for the victory.

According to the APC Chieftain, Oyetola’s resounding victory across the 332 wards in the state was an affirmation of the widely-acknowledged sterling performance of the governor in his first term.

“Last Saturday, All Progressives Congress members in Osun rose in their large numbers to exercise their democratic rights.

“They voted massively to give governor Adegboyega Oyetola a clear mandate to contest for a second term in office.

“Their decision was expressed in very unambiguous and unmistaken terms. For this overwhelming victory in the APC primary election, I wholeheartedly congratulate and rejoice with him,” he said.

He added that Oyetola’s victory was also an expression of confidence the teeming party members in Osun had in his ability and capacity to propel the state to an even greater height in the second term.

Tinubu commended the leadership of the party for ensuring the success of the primary election and for effectively mobilising its members to participate fully in the electoral process.

Meanwhile, he said the party members also deserve praise for not only conducting themselves in an orderly manner but for ensuring that their choices are expressed freely, fairly and unreservedly.
