It was ahead of Saturday’s governorship election, Buhari, Tinubu, SanwoOlu, APC governors and leaders while speaking during the campaign rally, unanimously endorsed Oy- etola and urged the people to vote for continuity of the lofty projects embarked upon by the APC-led administration in the state.
Speaking during the rally attended by thousands of residents, Buhari urged the electorate to come out in large numbers and vote for Oyetola for continuity of good governance.
He said Oyetola deserved to be re-elected to consolidate what he had done in his first term. Buhari, represented by Tinubu, raised Oyetola’s hand as the APC’s gov- ernorship candidate and appealed to all the people to re-elect him.
“Go out with your PVCs and vote massively for APC and Governor Oyetola on Saturday. Think about your children and vote for Oyetola for a better future for them.
“You must all go out in large crowd on Saturday to re-elect Governor Oyetola. Don’t be deceived by PDP and other mushrooms par- ties. We must vote and defeat them,”
Tinubu said. Lawan said Osun in the last three and half years had witnessed great development and growth under the leader- ship of Governor Oyetola. He described Oyetola as a prudent and good manager of human and material resources, adding that the governor has done a lot in his first term for him to be re-elected.
Sanwo-Olu said his Osun counterpart had performed very well in his first term and he is deserving of another term. Sanwo-Olu, who is the Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council for Osun State Governorship Election, said the electorate must vote and ensure that their votes count. He said: “Governor Oyetola has performed extremely well.
He is deserving of another term. I have gone on campaign train with him and from what I have seen and heard, he has done very well.
“Don’t allow anybody to deceive you. There is no crisis in APC. We are united in our party. “I want to urge you all to vote for APC and Governor Oyetola on Saturday so that he can continue the good work he is doing in Osun State. By God’s grace, we will come back for victory dance on Sunday.”
