The Governor of the State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, has stated that he did not lose the July 16 governorship election that produced the Governor-elect, Sen. Ademola Adeleke as the winner.

Oyetola made this position on Tuesday in Osogbo during the inauguration of “Nigeria for BAT” to canvas votes for the presidential candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The Governor stated that he was defeated during the vote counting exercise.

Oyetola who was represented at the programme by his Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Oluomo Sunday Akere, said: “I did not lose the July 16 election but only lost in the counting of the votes.”

“We did not lose an election in Osun but we lost the votes count and that is what everybody must know, we are at the tribunal and we are going to regain our mandate.”

He claimed that both Adeleke and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be sacked soon by the election petition tribunal for stealing his mandate during the last governorship election.

On the inauguration of Nigeria for BAT, Oyetola said: “Nigeria for BAT in Osun is to canvass masses’ votes for the party’s presidential candidate in the coming election.

“We are flagging off Nigeria for BAT here in Osogbo and also flagging off the campaign for APC nationwide to tell Nigeria and Nigerians not to lose hope on this nation.”
