Osun Election: My victory is certain, Oyetola affirms


Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has affirmed that he will be victorious in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

Oyetola stated that the numerous achievements of his administration would make his reelection a landslide victory.

The governor made this assertion while addressing members of Nigerian Incooporated Electronic Practitioners, Osun State Chapter during an engagement meeting organised by the Civic Engagement Office on Sunday in Osogbo.

Oyetola, who was represented at the meeting by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, said campaign of calumny by the opposition parties against his administration would not hinder his victory.

Oyetola noted that the victory recorded by the All Progressives Congress for its candidate in Ekiti governorship election would be replicated in Osun.

“For me, defeat is not an option in the coming election. The victory that will be recorded in the election through the popular votes of the electorate for me and APC will surpass that of Ekiti State.

“We are prepared for the election and it will not be out of place to extend hands of fellowship to everyone to join us in moving the state forward.

“I want to emphasise that failure is not an option, but victory is certain by the grace of God”, he said.

Oyetola also assured the electorate that he would not let them down during his second term in office, adding that his mission in politics was service to humanity.

He said the laudable achievements his administration had achieved in all sectors in the state would be consolidated on, when reelected.

The governor, however, urged the electorate to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to support him in the coming election.

He explained that Friday was declared as public holiday in the state to encourage registered voters to get the PVCs to enable them to vote for him.
