Osun guber: Buhari urges aggrieved contestants to seek redress in court
• Congratulates APC, Oyetola On Victory
President Muhammadu Buhari has urged aggrieved contestants in Thursday’s conclusion of the Osun State governorship election to seek redress in court if they disagreed with the outcome.
In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari, yesterday, affirmed that the successful election in the state further strengthens the democratic culture in the country, extolling the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for, once again, making the country proud.
The President congratulated the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the governor-elect, Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola, for winning the keenly contested election.
Buhari also 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.
“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,” he said.
The President, in the statement, urged the governor-elect to always remember that the electorate expect unreserved commitment to delivering results that directly impact their lives and families, while commending the maturity, loyalty and courage of all contestants in putting in their best to be elected to serve the state, just as he charged those who disagree with the outcome to seek redress in court.
