Osun 2022: What Adeleke’s Victory Will Do For PDP - BoT Chair, Jibrin

The Board of Trustees Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, says the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke in the just-concluded Osun governorship candidate would bring more wins for the party.

Jibrin in an interview with journalists in Abuja said Adeleke’s emergence as Osun governor-elect would enable the opposition party to win more states in the South West and across the country.

The PDP chieftain disclosed that the victory recorded by the PDP in the Osun election did not come to him as a surprise as he had earlier assured the governor-elect of winning the poll.

He said: “Before the election, I assured the governor-elect of winning the election. I was there at Osun during the last campaign and the number of people that turned out for the rally was unbelievable I was so sure that the PDP will win Osun state.

“This is just the beginning of victory. What has happened in Osun state now is an indication of PDP’s stand in the whole country. We as a party have learned our lessons and the Yoruba are beginning to learn their lessons too, by coming out to elect Adeleke.

“We are rest assured that other states in Western Nigeria will be won by the PDP come 2023.”

Recall that Adeleke defeated the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress and the incumbent governor, Gboyega Oyetola, on Saturday.

Adeleke won 17 local government areas in the state out of 30, while Oyetola had the remaining 13 local government areas.

Oyetola polled 375,027 votes, while Adeleke gathered 403,371 votes to win the governorship election.
