Adegboyega Oyetola, the former governor of Osun, congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the winner of Nigeria’s just-concluded presidential election, on his victory, calling it a victory for democracy and a sign of the country’s continued democratic rule.
Oyetola expressed trust in the abilities, competence, and managerial skills of the President-elect to lead the nation to commendable heights unheard of in history in a statement released by his spokesperson, Ismail Omipidan.
He stated that the election of the President-elect is a definite sign that the nation is about to experience a democratic revival and insisted that Tinubu, who possesses the necessary traits for a good leader, would build on the accomplishments of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In addition, Oyetola expressed gratitude to the people of Osun, particularly the 343,945 voters who braved harassment and intimidation from thugs supported by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State to cast their votes in favor of the President-elect last Saturday. He promised that their efforts would not go in vain.
He expressed sympathy to the families of the 15 APC members who had died at the hands of PDP thugs in the run-up to the presidential election and prayed for their souls, saying that they would not have died in vain.
Oyetola also expressed gratitude to the party’s leaders and members in Osun for their support, promising them that the party will soon return to pick up where it left off on November 27, 2022.
Oyetola further said, “Your emergence at the just-concluded Presidential Election is indeed a reward of your tireless efforts and selfless service to Nigeria and Nigerians and of course humanity.
“You are not just a leader of leaders but the finest politician who had used his God-given wisdom and wealth to build humanity and advance the socio-economic fortune of our dear country.
“With your antecedents coupled with your outstanding credentials in both private and public sectors, I have no doubt in my mind that you will deliver good governance and build on Nigeria’s existing democratic structures,” Oyetola added.
