Osun Election :  Davido Reacts To Oyetola Tribunal
  • PublishedAugust 6, 2022

David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has reacted to Election Petition Tribunal submitted by the incumbent Governor of State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, yesterday.

Davido asked Oyetola to congratulate Ademola Adeleke, the Governor-elect of the state.

Senator Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party defeated Oyetola, the candidate of All Progressive Congress, at Osun’s governorship election which held in July 16.

According to the total votes recorded by the Independent Electoral Commission, the PDP won 17 of the 30 Local Government Areas of the state, while the APC won the remaining 13.

Oyetola has, however, contested the results, asking an Election Petition Tribunal in Osogbo to nullify the the polls.

In his petition, the Governor argued that the election was fraught with irregularities.

He also said that Adeleke ought not to have been declared winner, as he was not qualified to have contested the election in the first place, having submitted forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Davido, who is a nephew to Adeleke, has however, called on the governor to congratulate his uncle for the win.

“Your excellency sir, @GboyegaOyetola, when will you congratulate the incoming governor of your state, @AAdeleke_01?” Davido wrote in a tweet on Saturday.

Referencing the controversial 2018 governorship election which held in the state, the singer continued, “In 2018, my uncle congratulated you even though it was stolen. Do the right thing baba, one love.”
