Oyetola will return as governor before July 5 – Osun Speaker



Honorable Timothy Owoeye, the Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, has predicted that the immediate past governor of the state, Adegboyega Oyetola, would return to office before July 5, 2023.

Owoeye, said this at the inauguration of the Osun State branch of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council in Osogbo on Thursday.

He described as temporary setback the defeat suffered by the All Progressives Congress in the July 16 Osun governorship poll, which saw the emergence of Ademola Adeleke as governor.

According to him, “In 2019, the Supreme Court gave its final verdict on July 5, affirming the victory of Oyetola as the governor. If you know them, go and tell them that before July 5, 2023 Oyetola will be returned as Osun Governor.

“They thought they could manipulate the results of the election in their favour, but we thank God that the results of the Bimodal Voter’s Accreditation System (BVAS) exposed them.

“So, Please, the presidential election is very important to us and we want you to begin to mobilize our people to vote massively for our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima and all other candidates of our party,” he added.
