The All Progressives Congress (APC) has hailed the ruling of the Supreme Court affirming the election of Gboyega Oyetola as the Governor of Osun State.
A statement by national spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu, congratulated Governor Oyetola and the Party’s Osun State chapter for successfully defending the party’s “legitimate mandate”.
“This ruling now cements the majority status of progressive governors in the country.
“Undoubtedly a closely-contested election, we commend the apex court’s decision which is in tandem with the choice of the Osun State electorate who voted for continuity and our Party’s Change Agenda.
“The ruling will now allow the Governor Oyetola-led APC administration in Osun State focus on the core business of governance and implementing the many pro-people developmental plans for the state.
“Finally, we seek the cooperation of all stakeholders in the state; particularly the political actors to support the Governor Oyetola administration in its bid to develop the state.”
