OSUN DECIDES: Don’t compare Osun with Lagos, Onuesoke advises Tinubu

CITIZENS COMPASS- FEW days to Osun State 2022 Governorship election, a Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Sunny Onuesoke has advised the Presidential candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu to watch his utterances against other political parties contesting for the election.

The former Delta State PDP Aspirant also noted that politicking in Osun State is different from that of Lagos.

He was reacting to a statement credited to Tinubu that “People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party and other opposition parties will labour till death’, at APC Mega rally in Osun State.

Onuesoke who said the APC Presidential candidate should not be carried away with his unchallenged popularity in Lagos state saying his confidence may backfire because Osun State PDP Governorship candidate Ademola Adeleke is permanently on ground in terms of structure and popularity compare with the APC Osun Governorship candidate.

The PDP Chieftain told Tinubu not to compare election in Osun State with Lagos state because the upcoming poll in Osun state is a different ball game entirely.

“I do not expect Tinubu to underrate other political parties in Osun 2023.

“Governorship race especially the PDP. Ademola Adeleke of PDP who is challenging the incumbent Governor of Osun state is no doubt a strong contender and he stands a good chance of emerging victorious.

“He lost to Oyetola in what was obviously a keenly contested election that was decided with a run off after a clear winner failed to emerge on the first ballot.

“As a former Senator, he is well known across the state.

“His 2018 gubernatorial aspiration as well as his being a member of the illustrious Adeleke family of Edeland, combine to make him popular in the state.

“He is also known to have a wide political structure peopled largely by leaders of the PDP in the various wards and local governments of the state.

“The candidate will also benefit immensely from the street credibility and state-wide popularity of his late brother, former governor Isiaka Adeleke.

“This is why I am saying that Tinubu should not compare Osun election with Lagos because Lagos he does not have strong challenges as he has in Osun state.

“However, the setting in Osun is different entirely and Tinubu and his APC loyalists should expect a shocker from PDP in Osun 2023 Governorship election ,” Onuesoke stated.
