Adeleke canvasses support for PDP in Osun Assembly elections

THE Governor of Osun state, Ademola Adeleke has urged on the people of Osun State to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 11th State Assembly elections, ahead of his 100th day in office.

In a statement released today by the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke commended the residents of the state for their “full support” in the July 16, 2022 governorship election as well as the presidential and National Assembly elections last Saturday.

The governor, who allegedly addressed his constituents in Yoruba, urged them to vote for the PDP again next Saturday so that he could continue to provide democratic dividends.

“My good people of Osun state. I address you today to express my heartfelt appreciation for your love and backing for me all the time. You voted for me massively last year. I am ever grateful. You voted for my party massively in federal elections. I am thankful,” the statement read.

“For me to continue to serve you well, I request that you vote for the 26 House of Assembly candidates of the PDP. They are the team I will work with. They are very important for the implementation of the Imole agenda. A PDP fully controlled State Assembly is the key to more dividends of democracy.

“Next Saturday’s election is very critical for Osun State. A vote for those Assembly candidates is a vote for me. I need them to serve you better and to complete the work we have started. Another victory for me and my party, the PDP, it will speed up the progress already recorded and drive our state to greater heights.”

The governor called for a nonviolent election, stressing it is not about killing and maiming but about exercising one’s right to vote.

He asked the people of Osun to vote for PDP candidates in a peaceful manner.
