- The APC United Kingdom (APC-UK) has advised and congratulated the Osun governor-elect

- The chapter advised the governor-elect to carry the people along
Ade Omole, the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) United Kingdom chapter, has advised the Osun governor-elect, Adegboyega Oyetola, to be magnanimous in victory by carrying along other contestants in governing the state.
He gave the advice in a statement made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday, September 28, in Abuja, while congratulating the governor-elect.
Legit.ng notes that Omole gave the party a nod for a job well-done, adding that Adegboyega’s victory at the keenly contested election was well deserved.
He advised the governor-elect to operate an all inclusive government and to hit the ground running as soon as he was sworn in, adding that there was a lot to be done in the state to consolidate on the achievements of the outgoing governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
The UK leader of the APC chapter thanked Osun electorate for their patience and orderliness during the election and for voting their choice candidate, saying that they were the heroes of the moment.
He further thanked the electorate for their vote and urged them to continue to support the APC-led government at all levels and to vote President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
He maintained that the APC remained the best party for Nigerians.
Oyetola of APC scored a total of 255,505 to defeat Ademola Adeleke of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 255,023 in a re-run on Thursday, September 27, after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the September 22 Osun guber poll inconclusive.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the governorship election in Osun state, Ademola Adeleke, has rejected the re-run election result. He labelled the process as a “charade” which must not be allowed to stand.
In a statement made available to the media by Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organisation (AACO), the election was described as a charade and hence, rejected.
Adeleke, who claimed that the voters were deliberately refused access to polling points at gun points, promised to challenge this mandate at the tribunal.
