Osun will deliver one million votes for Tinubu, says Gov. Oyetola


Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun has promised to deliver one million votes for Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, in the 2023 general elections.

He said this on Monday in Abuja at the party’s national secretariat when he spoke with reporters.

“We have started the campaign. Sometime last week, we had a solidarity walk throughout the state, and we covered 11 km, the turnout was so massive.

“Osun has always been a state for the progressive, so there is nothing to worry about. I can assure you that we will deliver nothing less than one million votes for Asiwaju,” he said.

Mr Oyetola, elected in September 2018, lost his re-election bid on July 16 to Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to INEC, Mr Adeleke polled 403,371 votes, while Mr Oyetola scored 372,257 in the election.

Mr Oyetola, dissatisfied with the outcome, approached the court and called for the cancellation of the election, alleging over-voting.

He also alleged that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) was bypassed by INEC, among other alleged electoral frauds.

Mr Oyetola said he would reclaim his mandate, saying he had no fear.

“I don’t have any fear. I have faith in the almighty God. I will reclaim my mandate,” Mr Oyetola said.
