President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Osun electorates to vote for Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state gubernatorial election. The Punch reports that the president said this on Tuesday, September 19 at the party mega rally in Osogbo.
The state gubernatorial election is scheduled for Saturday, September 22. Buhari described the APC candidate as the best man for the job so that he can continue with the developmental projects of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
He said: “This is why you must all come out and vote for the APC on the 22 of September, 2018. Osun must remain APC, Osun must continue on the path of progress, Osun must not allow the dark days to return.”
Aregbesola in his appeal to the state said he really worked hard for eight years and expressed optimism in the party’s victory.

He said: “We are winning the election of Saturday, September 22 by the grace of God and we are coming back to jubilate. Why must God support us? Because we have worked 24 hours of every single day of the 2,922 days allowed by the constitution to serve the people of this state.
Merely looking at me will testify to that fact.
“Our party has done the impossible here, we have changed the face of Osun and for that reason and the will and power of God, we are returning Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola on September 22 as the governor-elect and we are returning Benedict Oluwagboyega Alabi as the deputy governor-elect. Both of them will be sworn in on Tuesday, November 27.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Gboyega Oyetola, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday, September 16, disclosed that the government does not pay half salaries but rather pays modulated salaries. Oyetola made this known during the Osun state governorship debate organised by Channels Television, when asked why several workers in the state don’t get paid.
