‘Our victory is will of people’
Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
The All Progressives Congress’s APC, victory in Saturday’s House of Assembly election in Osun State has been described as a clear and emphatic statement that the people want good governance to continue.
APC, in the state won 22 House of Assembly seats out of 26 seats.
The election which was keenly contested majorly by the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state was devoid of violence.
The APC lost Ede North and South, and Obokun State Constituencies to the opposition party, while Oriade local government is inconclusive.
In a congratulatory message to the electorate and the entire people of the state, signed by the party’s Director of Publicity, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, the APC described its success at the polls as “a clear victory for the people.”
“According to the party, what the majority of our people have indicated is that, “it makes sense to continue with what had been happening in the state since 2010.
“This is moreso because the successor of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, (Governor Gboyega Oyetola), was himself at the core of implementation of APC development agenda right from the beginning.
The party said Oyetola’s first moves since he took over three months ago as Governor, have been positively symbolic of what to expect.
“So, continuity is secured, further progress is guaranteed and the future promises to be even brighter with such a seamless transfer of power from one to the other administration in the State of Osun”, the APC said.
The party posited that the present governor stands a better chance of improving on the quality of policy making and implementation.
“It must be said in acknowledgement that it is the people of Osun who have also made it happen with their total support at the polls.
The party urged the people of the state to brace up for greater achievements, regardless of their party affiliation, and to unite in contributing their share of responsibility in making the state one of the best in Nigeria.
