The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole has said that the outcome of the Osun State governorship elections is proof that Nigeria’s Democracy is flourishing.
According to the former Labour leader and Governor of Edo State Oshiomhole, “I think that for democracy to flourish, only people who can accept the pain rigging (sorry of defeat) …”
The election in Osun State according to local and foreign observers was marred by a type of rigging that has never been heard in history. Electorates were stopped from casting their votes.
Meanwhile, in their response, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) interpreted the statement by Oshiomhole as “I think that for democracy to flourish, only people who can accept the pain of rigging (sorry defeat)…”
INEC has declared the APC candidate Gboyega Oyetola as Winner of the Elections without any form of jubilation in the State of Osun.
