A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Segun Showunmi, has said great lessons must be learned from the outcome of the Osun State 2022 governorship election held on Saturday.
DAILY POST has reported that Ademola Adeleke of the PDP defeated the incumbent Governor of the State, Gboyega Oyetola, to emerge a winner.
According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Adeleke scored 403,371 votes to beat Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 375,025 votes.
Reacting in a statement on Sunday, Showunmi touched on the holy books, saying that both the Quran and the Bible confirmed that power belongs to God only.
While saying the verdict and the wish of the people of Osun have prevailed, Showunmi said “this is the beginning of greater things to come.”
According to him, everyone is the winner in a nation where democracy is allowed to prevail.
As Showunmi congratulated the Osun governor-elect, Adeleke, he also hailed “the Adeleke Family ably led by the scion, Sir Deji Adeleke, supported massively by Davido the youthful pride of the pack!”
His words: “Congratulations to the PDP family. Congratulations to the great and historical people of Osun, indeed Osun Le Tente, meaning Osun is above the fray.
“Great lessons must be learnt, appropriately captured by scripture of the books, both the Quoran and the Bible, wherein it is written that power belongs to God, the absolute sovereign!
“Now that the verdict is in and the wish of the people has prevailed, we can safely say that this is the beginning of greater things to come. When democracy is allowed to prevail, everyone is the winner.”
Meanwhile, Showunmi commiserated with the family of Jide Jooba, who he said lost his life during the Osun election, asking the law enforcement agencies to unravel the circumstances and persons involved in his death.
“Surely, the PDP family is happy about the outcome of this election and we say a big thank you to all the people of Osun State. Osun Le Tente. Ipinle Omoluabi,” he said.
