The state Government of Osun wishes to express its gratitude to the good people of Osun, the State of Osun Independent Electoral Commission, security agents and other stakeholders that participated in the Saturday January 27th 2018 elections into Local Governments, Local Government Development Authorities, Administrative Offices and Area Offices in the state.
The election was no doubt peaceful, transparent and credible.
We commend OSIEC for the successful conduct of the election; it is a job well done.
Likewise, we appreciate the security agents for the high display of professionalism in providing enabling environment for the election.
The government commends the voters for their peaceful conduct and casting votes for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the election. We applaud their loyalty and staunch support for the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola
We congratulate the winners of the election who are all from the ruling APC; and we task them to enhance governance at the grassroots for effective service delivery. Specifically, we urge the councilors to support the Internally Generated Revenue drive of the state government.
The outcome of the election shows that the government of the APC enjoys the support of the people of the state who appreciate the good governance being delivered by Governor Rauf Aregbesola. It is an affirmation that the people wants the APC to continue running the affairs of the state and the grassroots, having enjoyed the development that characterized Aregbesola’s administration.
Similarly, the withdrawal of the opposition parties, particularly the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is nothing but a scheme to avoid a public electoral disgrace, because the parties had lost touch with the people of the state.
The government is looking forward to more support from the electorate for future election; and we promise the continuous delivery of good governance.
