The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot be saved from an embarrassing defeat in the Osun State Governorship election despite its Presidential Candidate’s face-saving run to Abuja, the nation’s seat of power.
The PDP said the APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, had to quickly rush to Abuja, to allegedly seek ways to upturn the decision of Osun people to reject his party in the governorship election held on Saturday.
PDP alleged that
“the unsettled Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu” had to leave Osun for Abuja to seek ways to upturn the will of the people.
According to PDP, Tinubu must accept the embarrassing loss of his party in Osun state.
PDP said Tinubu and APC Must accept the outcome of the will of Osun people.
The statement reads signed by Hon. Debo Ologunagba, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, reads: “Our Party is already aware that APC leaders are rushing to Abuja in a desperate move to manipulate the process and frustrate the smooth conclusion of the election, having realised that the APC has been rejected by the people.
“Asiwaju Tinubu must know that the people of Osun State have spoken and that his running to Abuja cannot save the deflated Governor Gboyega Oyetola from the reverberating verdict of the ballot box.
“Our Party charges the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the APC leadership in Abuja to note that the course of the election is already known to all and that the people of Osun State will never accept any outcome to the contrary.
“The PDP charges INEC to resist the manipulations and pressure from the APC by sticking to its assurance to the people that the election will be transparent and conclusive at the first ballot.
“The PDP congratulates the people of Osun State and urges them to remain at alert, protect their votes and ensure that the results declared at the polling centres are not altered but duly reflected at the collation and final declaration.
“We also congratulate all democratic institutions, stakeholders and all patriots who stood by the people to achieve this great shift.”
