Osun APC Congratulates Ademola Adeleke, Pledges to Return Stronger


The Osun State secretariat of the All Progress has lauded the peaceful conduct of people in Osun West Senatorial District in the state during last Saturday’s by-election.

In a statement by its chairman, Gboyega Famoodun released to newsmen in Osogbo on Sunday evening, the party congratulated the winner of the polls, Otunba Ademola Adeleke of the PDP urging him to shun partisan politics.

The APC held that although it lost the election, the people of the district are still in the minds of the party for their loyalty and undiluted support for the progressives since the end of colonial rule in Nigeria.

It equally commended the APC led federal and state government for ensuring peaceful, free and fair election urging the Senator-elect to avoid partisan politics and be fair to all sides now that elections are over.

The statement reads “We also congratulate Ademola Adeleke for his victory and we hope that now that the election is behind us, he will put partisan politics aside to represent the interest of the entire people of his constituency.”

“Although the outcome is contrary to our expectation, the people have spoken and we heard their voice loud and clear. As democrats, we respect their choice.”

“The people of Osun West Senatorial District have stood by us in past elections and have always voted for our tendency since the colonial era. We are proud of them. We are proud of our party and we are proud of all our members and sympathisers.”

The party however restated its decision to study the pattern of the results and come back stronger in future elections in the district.

“We shall study the pattern of the result, learn the right lessons from it and return stronger for the next election. We shall remain resolute in our commitment as a political party to the welfare of our people, building them up today in order to prepare them for a better tomorrow. We are a party of the people.”

“Election for us is not an end in itself but a means to an end – which is to best represent the interest of the people. We have been consistent, irrespective of the outcomes of elections, favourable or unfavourable. Our greater concern has always been the people and their welfare,” the APC continued.

It also assured that the Osun State Government it controls will not with the turn of events marginalize the district in its multi farious development programmes.
The APC concluded that “We are therefore assuring our people that we are still the party that guarantees better life for them, maximum social protection in the provision of free education, economic empowerment and life more abundant.”
