As APC members celebrate the victory of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola over PDP’s Iyiola Omisore at the governorship elections held on Saturday in Osun state, the Special Adviser to President Jonathan on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufa’i Alkali, has described the PDP’s loss as painful and has urged the APC to reject the results of the election.
He said. “Today we would have celebrated Osun victory. It is however, a very painful day for us because the PDP candidate and the party had completed their home work and we know the people of Osun are tired of what is happening in the state, but here we are.
“I hope the APC, which is in the habit of complaining of having security agencies in ensuring enabling environment for election and is consistent in controversy and rejecting election results, will reject this Osun state gubernatorial election result.”
He however commended Independent National Electoral Commission and the security agencies for the roles they played in delivering a credible election in Osun.
