Buhari has declared that Osun State must remain under the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The President, therefore, called on electorate in the state to vote for the APC candidate, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, in the Saturday’s governorship election.
Buhari made this call Osogbo, the state capital on Tuesday while addressing supporters of the APC at a mega rally for the governorship candidate of the party ahead of the poll.
The President described the governorship candidate of the party as the right man for the job, while urging electorate to vote Oyetola in order to continue with the development witnessed in the last years of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
He said, “This is why you must all come out and vote for the APC on the 22 of September, 2018. Osun must remain APC, Osun must continue on the path of progress, Osun must not allow the dark days to return.”
Also speaking, the incumbent Governor Rauf Aregbesola said Oyetola would win the poll because his administration worked tirelessly to develop the state in the past eight years.
Aregbesola said, “We are winning the election of Saturday, September 22 by the grace of God and we are coming back to jubilate. Why must God support us? Because we have worked 24 hours of the every single day of the 2922 days allowed by the constitution to serve the people of this state.
“Our party has done the impossible here, we have changed the face of Osun and for that reason and the will and power of God, we are returning Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola on September 22 as the governor-elect and we are returning Benedict Oluwagboyega Alabi as the deputy governor-elect. Both of them will be sworn in on Tuesday, November 27.”
