Aregbesola deletes comment on Osun election

CITIZENS COMPASS– THE Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has deleted a post where he broke his silence on the outcome of the just-concluded Osun State governorship election.

This was after the post had gone viral Sunday morning.

In a statement, the Media Adviser to the Minister of Interior, Sola Fasure, said the deleted post was not authorised.

The former Osun State governor, who boycotted the election, had remained silent on development in Osun State after his outburst against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and his political boss, Bola Tinubu, in February 2022.

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Sunday morning declared Ademola Adeleke the governor select of Osun State after scoring a majority of votes cast in the governorship election in the state.

The victory came for Adeleke nearly four years after failing by a small margin in his bid to govern Osun State.

On Saturday, Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to defeat his closest rival, the incumbent governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola, who polled 375,027 votes.

Though 15 political parties participated in the election, the top contenders were Oyetola and Adeleke.

Both Oyetola and Adeleke contested for the Osun governorship seat in 2018, which Oyetola won after a rerun.
