A former minister of communication, Adebayo Shittu, has spoken on why the All Progressives Congress (APC) lost to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last governorship election in Osun.

During an Arise TV interview on Monday, August 8, Shittu who is also the director-general of Asiwaju Tinubu Presidential Campaign Organisation (ATPCO) said Osun voted threw their weight behind the PDP'candidate, Ademola Adeleke, because they have a grouse with Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

However, the APC chieftain noted that for the 2023 presidential election, those who voted for the PDP in Osun will support elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In his view, Shittu said there is no internal wrangling in the APC and that the result of the next general elections will prove this position.

The presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has congratulated Ademola Adeleke, the winner of the just-concluded Osun governorship election.

Via Twitter on Sunday, July 17, Obi sent a personal message of regard and congratulations to Adeleke on his victory.

The former Anambra governor also hailed the LP's gubernatorial candidate and his running mate, Rt. Hon Lasun Sulaimon Yusuff and Adeola Adekunle Atanda, respectively, for their fighting spirit during the poll.

Obi noted that despite the fact that the party has only been in operation for weeks against other platforms that for about 20 years have been known across Nigeria, LP has made its presence felt across the country.

It was a happy moment in the Adeleke family the moment Adeleke was announced the winner of the Osun election held on Saturday, July 16.
