Today’s victory is made possible by the members of our great party who gave us another opportunity to face the people of Osun to seek re-election. The outcome of this primary election is victory for our party and members who have spoken loudly through their votes.
It is victory for our people who trooped out in large number during our strategic tour of the State to inform them of our intention to seek a second term. It is a restatement of their confidence in our Development Agenda which hope delivered in 2018 and performance sealed in 2022. It is evidence of their belief in sustainable development which we brought into governance and preached every inch of the way.
I thank you all our party members for your constant support, and especially for speaking eloquently today with your massive votes in favour of our administration’s restoration and consolidation agenda.
With this primary election now concluded, I invite us all to rededicate ourselves and the party to delivering an overwhelming victory at the gubernatorial polls holding on Saturday, 16th July, 2022.
For me, we are all winners. I, therefore, extend my hand of fellowship to the other two aspirants to join me as we prepare for the July election. We are all brothers. Let’s join hands to build the Osun of our dream.
Let us close ranks and eschew bitterness in whatever form. Therefore, may I use this opportunity to also ask all our aggrieved members to have a rethink and join hands with us to further strengthen our party and deliver outstanding results at the gubernatorial poll.
I thank my brother Governor and Chairman of the Osun Governorship Primary Election Committee, His Excellency, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq and all members of his team for conducting a hitch-free exercise. I pray God return them to their various destinations in peace.
I equally thank all the security agencies for living up to expectation and for helping us to guard jealously our enviable status as the most peaceful State in Nigeria.
To all our citizens, we thank you for standing by us in the journey of these three years plus. I promise not to let you down in the years ahead.
As we commence the electioneering campaigns, I urge all contestants across party lines to perform this exercise with utmost decency and not jeopardize the peace and tranquillity our State is noted for. This is the least our people deserve and the beauty democracy requires.
Once again, I thank you all for the honour of your resounding nomination. I shall not disappoint you.
Thank you and God bless.”
