Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, yesterday, again thanked party leaders, supporters, loyalists and critical stakeholders for the huge support they gave him, including trooping out en massse during the just-concluded primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), where he emerged victorious. 

The governor’s appreciation was contained in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan.

Specifically, he acknowledged the role played by the leadership of ‘Igbimo Agba’ (Elders Council), especially Chief Bisi Akande, Engineer Sola Akinwumi, Otunba Iyiola Omisore, Sooko Adeleke Adewoyin, Mrs. Titi Laoye Ponle and other too numerous to mention, disclosing that their wise counsel helped in no small measure in bringing the party back to life. 

He also has kind words for the party chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, and other party executive members for their unflinching loyalty and support, adding that their firm stand on the need to reposition the party paid off.

Oyetola said he did not begrudge those who contested the ticket with him, saying it was the expression of their democratic rights, just as he thanked members of the national, state assemblies and the cabinet members for standing by him.

“This is the beauty of democracy. My challengers expressed their democratic rights. I thank the party members for their prayers, goodwill and immense faith reposed in me. Let me also reassure them that I will never let them down. I will continue to work for the common good and to justify every bit of confidence reposed in me as a candidate of the party,” Oyetola added.
