Former Osun House of Assembly Aspirant in Ifelodun state constituency under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Hon. Azeez Rasheed Ayofe has congratulated Senator Ademola Adeleke, on his victory in the just concluded July 16 governorship election,
He added that the emergence of the PDP in the just concluded gubernatorial election as a dawn of new era for the people of the state, who have been subjected to mis-governance by the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, in the last 12 years.
In the congratulatory message personally signed by him, Hon. Ayofe described PDP’s victory at the election as “a liberation movement,” adding that the victory in Osun State has set a revolutionary trend for Nigerians ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The victory, according to him, “points to the fact that it is only the people that can actually liberate themselves from their oppressors when they feel like doing so. Citing a British Philosopher, John Lock, he noted further, “the length and duration of oppression will be determined by the oppressed themselves, not the oppressors.”
“Take a cue from Osun people and sustain the revolutionary trend and continue to voice out against the bad governance and hardship being experienced under the obnoxious APC regime since 2010 in Osun State and 2015, in Nigeria at the federal level, so the the excesses of the party can be permanently put to a necessary end.”
He therefore advised the Governor-Elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, to be magnanimous in victory and to learn from history, by taking into cognisance how the administration of his predecessors ended, because they failed to fulfil their electoral promises to the people of Osun State and Nigeria at large.
He commended all PDP members and the entire Osun electorate just as he expressed his profound gratitude to the Adeleke family, for their support and display of interest in the Peoples Democratic Party, professionals, civil servants, artisans, academics, student bodies, various groups and numerous interest groups that subsequently paved ways for the PDP.
He assured the good people of Osun that their trust and hope in the PDP will not be dashed, and that the party will provide a better leadership and people oriented government from November 27, 2022.
He stated that , “Our people have resoundingly spoken with their votes against the APC. The resolve of the people no doubt, can be stronger than iron. They have endured APC’s hardship for long and decided to put a halt to it on Saturday,” he said.
“PDP’s victory in Osun is a pointer to the fact that Nigerians are tired of the administration of APC and will stop at nothing at seeing them defeated in all elections next year,” he added.
While thanking the people of the state for rallying round the PDP which culminated in its victory, he assured that their expectations would not be cut short.
