The All Progressives Congress in the State of Osun has felicitated with the people of the state over what it described as the narrow escape from the tragedy which did not happen in the state with the victory of Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola in the September 22nd governorship election.
Kunle Oyatomi, the party’s Director of Research, Publicity and Strategy said ‘We rejoice with the people of Osun for the narrow escape from tragedy which God made miraculously possible on Thursday, September 27th, 2018.
‘Without divine intervention on Saturday 22nd, when the forces of evil almost fraudulently snatched victory, the good people of this emerging state would have been in mourning by now.
‘Both the governorship election on Saturday on the 22nd of September and the partial re-run of Thursday 27th were classic examples of how “God intervenes in the affairs of men.”
‘We firmly believe that PDP did not deserve a second place in that election; and because they did not earn it, they lost it.
‘PDP had never been and could never become a substitute for the APC in Osun. If ill-fated had helped them all the way through last Saturday, Osun would have stalled and regressed.
‘But because the people did not merit that kind of fate, God allowed the PDP to collapse under the burden of its own evil machinations.
‘God knew best and we are aware that if APC government did not continue, the PDP would have not only halted everything Gov. Rauf Aregbesola had done, they would have replaced it with the PDP signature of ‘blood and tears’.
‘Rather than that tragedy befalling Osun and her people, the Almighty Allah stepped in just in time, to freeze a glaring tragedy and replace it with a joyful ending.
‘We assure the good people of this state that the in-coming government of Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola will not only continue to build on the good work and foundation that Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has built, he will do even more for the people.
‘May the Almighty Father of us all, continue to protect and guide Osun and bless its leadership with creativity, wisdom and courage to carry through the enormous task of development going forward’, the APC concluded.
