The APC Campaign Council for the Osun governorship election has advised the PDP to stop issuing threats and take full advantage of the democratic process if it has any grouse with Thursday’s supplementary election result.
In a statement issued in Osogbo, the Chairman of the Council’s Media Committee, Alhaji Lai Mohammed expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the supplementary election.
Mohammed who is also the Minister of Information and Culture said with the results, the people had emphatically pitched their tent with the ruling party.
”When the PDP led in the main election, which was declared inconclusive, we did not threaten fire and brimstone, neither did we drag the international community into it.
“We simply went along with the prescribed process. We urge the PDP to emulate this,” he said.
The chairman congratulated the Governor-elect, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, the outgoing Governor Rauf Aregbesola and the entire APC family for the “well deserved but hard-earned victory”.
He, also, commended INEC and the security agencies “for a largely peaceful and orderly election, as attested to by local and international observers”
He called on INEC and the security agencies to ensure that the “PDP thugs, fake observers and vote buyers” who were arrested during the rerun were all brought to justice expeditiously.
The chairman noted that the biggest winner in the whole election saga is democracy.
