Overwhelmed by the amount of votes he garnered during the Osun State governorship election held on Saturday, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ademola Adeleke, has thanked the voters.
He however urged them to rededicate themselves to the struggle to win the state.
“I send my appreciation through this medium to Osun voters who find me worthy of their votes. Your votes humbled me and further strengthen my resolve to truly serve our people,” he said in a statement he issued.
He said he was grateful that despite all the blackmails and persecution, the people stood by him, voted and defended their votes.
“You adopted me as the rallying point of the redemption movement. Words cannot express the depth of my appreciation,” he said.
He assured the people that they would get to the Promised Land.
He said the journey had started well and it would end in praise to God.
He however, charged the people to rededicate themselves to the struggle.
“You have proved that with determination, the most powerful tyrant can be forced to submit to the will of the people. I appreciate you all,” he added.
Adeleke scored the highest votes in the Osun State governorship election, but the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared the exercise inconclusive.
It claimed there were electoral frauds in some areas and there had to be a re-run
The re-run is already scheduled for Thursday.
