I Thank The People Of Osun State – Gboyega Oyetola

The Osun State Government Seal (State of Osun)Adams Oshiomhole has denied giving a dime to former Senator Iyiola Omisore.

Oshiomhole said that the party did not offer Senator Iyiola Omisore any financial inducement to gain his support during the supplement election conducted on Thursday, September 27.

New Osun State Governor-elect, Gboyega Oyetola, has thanked the people of the state for granting him victory in the state’s recently-concluded governorship election.

The Osun State governorship rerun election took place on Thursday, September 27, 2018, just days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the original September 22 election to have been inconclusive.

This was because the victory margin of 353 votes of first-placed candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke (254,698 votes) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), over second-placed Oyetola (254,345 votes) was less than the 3498 votes cancelled in seven polling units.

In the rerun election that took place in those affected polling units on Thursday, Oyetola won the rerun election with a difference of 835 votes as he acquired a total of 1160 votes to Adeleke’s 325.
