Adegboyega Oyetola, the former governor of Osun State, has assured his supporters that he would win back his mandate from Governor Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Additionally, he expressed confidence that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, would win the poll on February 25.
On his first visit back to Osun since November 25 of last year, Oyetola was greeted by throngs of APC supporters. He then stopped by the Tinubu-Shettima campaign office in Osogbo, where he joined party members in praying for the party’s victory in the general elections.
After the prayer meeting, Oyetola expressed his joy at being back among his supporters after spending time with his family, watching movies, and taking care of his spiritual well being.
He said, “I am happy to be back in your midst today after a long break with my family. I return to your midst with good tidings and I am lucky that you organise a prayer to receive me into the state.
“God has told me that he will do two things for us this year, we are going to retrieve our mandate and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will become the president of Nigeria.
“I know that you are scared by what happened but God knows how he does his plans. Everyone has his challenges. I served Osun wholeheartedly for four years without resting and God intentionally orchestrated my rest for a while. I wake up everyday, I eat, sleep and watch Africa Magic. I have time to receive my children and grandchildren. I later went to lesser hajj with my wife to give thanks to the Almighty.
“God made me govern Osun well. Let our mind be at rest, nobody can scare us off this state. I want to implore us that we should work hard for the forthcoming election, it is very important to us. Continue to hold your meeting, don’t be distracted”.
When welcoming Oyetola to the state, the party’s acting chairman in the state, Tajudeen Lawal, stated that party members were proud of the former governor’s accomplishments in office and that it would be impossible for anyone to match his records.
