Osun Rerun: Go to court if you disagree with the result — Buhari tells PDP


President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the opposition parties that list out in the Osun State governorship election to seek redress in court if they disagree with the outcome.

The ruling All Progressive Congress defeated the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by a slim margin of over 300 votes in the supplementary poll concluded on Thursday.

The President gave his advice on Friday morning in a congratulatory message to the APC candidate and now Governor-elect of Osun State, Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola.

A presidency statement said Buhari commended the maturity, loyalty and courage of all contestants in putting in their best to be elected to serve the state, but urged them to “seek redress in court, where they disagree with the outcome”.

He extended warm felicitations to the state and national campaign teams that worked assiduously to guarantee the victory at the polls, while commending the outgoing Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for “eight years of steadfastness and service to his people”.

In the words of the president: “Thank you Osun State for supporting our good governance agenda by re-electing the APC. I assure you that we will continue to work for the progress and prosperity of the state and the nation”.

The President urged the Governor-elect to always remember that the electorate expects unreserved commitment to delivering results that directly impact their lives and families.

“President Buhari affirms that the successful election in the State further strengthens the democratic culture in the country, extolling INEC for, once again, making the country proud”, the statement added.
