Ahead of the Osun State Governorship elections on July 16, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Wednesday, presented the party’s flag to the state governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gboyega Oyetola.
This was as he promised to avail himself to offer support to the governor at the grand finale of his campaign rallies.
According to a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari made the promise when he received Oyetola at the State House, Abuja, in the company of Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, amongst others.
The statement is titled ‘President Buhari presents party flag to gubernatorial candidate, commends Oyetola for tireless service to the people’.
It read in part, “The President commended the performance of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, the candidate of the party, for serving the people tirelessly in his first term in office, adding that he has confidence in the Party winning the election, fairly and squarely in the coming week.
“President Buhari gave kudos to the co-chairs of the Osun State Governorship Campaign Council, Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, as well as the Vice Chairman, Niger State’s Abubakar Sani Bello for putting in so much energy into the campaign to re-elect Governor Oyetola.
“‘I wish you the best of luck’, said the President.”
