The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described its victory at Saturday’s council polls as a triumph for the people and one big step forward for the popular desire of Nigerians to revert to parliamentary democracy.

In a statement by the Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy, signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi and made available to the media in Osogbo yesterday, the party congratulated the people for the emphatic statement they got across to the haters of progress in Osun that ‘the people know what they want and they will not allow themselves to be deceived by the shenanigans of the opposition.

Report so far about the election indicated that the ruling party had swept almost all the councillorship seats across the 30 local councils and the Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs).

According to the party, ‘beyond the electoral victory, is the political step forward into the less expensive parliamentary democracy, which will now start in Osun’s local government setting for the first time in 52 years since our parliamentary democracy was destroyed by the military in 1966.

“When the import of this election will be addressed in the history books in the future, the state of Osun will be celebrated as a catalyst for the return of parliamentary democracy if not in Nigeria, certainly in Yorubaland, the APC said.

“Those who objected to the development met their waterloo in the court and owing to their obsession for retaining the presidential system, they shot themselves in the foot, anticipating victory at the court by not registering to participate in the election. They miscalculated so badly that it turned out a double tragedy for them.

“And as God would have it against the PDP and its co-travelers, their double tragedy translated into double massive victory for the APC and the people of Osun.”

The APC, therefore, thanked the people for their support, loyalty and appreciation of all the good things that Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, the government he leads and the party have done to bring this state from the doldrums in which the PDP left it, to the pacesetter it has become today

“Whatever the opposition parties are saying about the election, is symptomatic of ‘the grapes are sour’ mentality. Those who love to hate will ultimately hate themselves in failure and deceit. That is the fate of the PDP and its opposition partners,” the APC concluded.
