BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday announced its rejection of what it described as “Peoples Democratic Party’s baseless calls” that the inconclusive Osun governorship election should be announced in its favour.
The APC in a statement by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena hailed the Osun electorate; Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); security agencies and relevant stakeholders over the conduct of Saturday’s inconclusive governorship election in the state.
The ruling party noted that the governoship election was largely peaceful despite some reported irregularities.
The APC said while the nation continue to improve on our electoral processes, particularly correcting some irregularities witnessed in Saturday’s election, it particularly commended the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration which it noted has continually exhibited its commitment towards ensuring that elections are more peaceful, transparent, credible and acceptable.
Nabena further said; “This is a departure from the situation under past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administrations where the people’s will was subverted and elections where manipulated.
“In the lead up to the rerun election, we call on the Osun electorate, party supporters and members to remain upbeat and focused on the task of consolidating on the APC Change administration in the state by voting for the victory of our candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.”
