    Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has congratulated Senator Ademola Adeleke, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun State Governorship election.

    Naija News earlier reported the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared Adeleke as the winner of the Osun governorship election.

    The INEC returning officer for the Osun governorship poll, Prof Oluwatoyin Temitayo Ogundipe, made the declaration on Sunday morning.

    Adeleke defeated the incumbent governor of the state and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gboyega Oyetola and thirteen other candidates in the July 16th election.

    The PDP governorship candidate was declared the winner at the head office of INEC in Osogbo, the state capital which was used as the collation centre.

    Adeleke won 17 local government areas in the state, while the candidate of the APC, Oyetola won the remaining 13 local government areas in the state.

    The incumbent governor of the state who was defeated in the election gathered 375,027 votes, while Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to win the election.

    In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Sunday morning, Tambuwal congratulated Adeleke for emerging victorious in Saturday’s gubernatorial poll.

    The Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum stated that the good people of Osun State have spoken loud and clear that politics is local.

    Tambuwal added that the PDP as a family appreciates the Good people of Osun for sending the signal that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would win the 2023 elections.

    He wrote: The good people of Osun State have spoken loud & clear that politics is local. I want to congratulate my brother, Senator @IsiakaAdeleke1 on his victory. The @OfficialPDPNig family appreciates the Good people of Osun for sending the signal that H.E @atiku is coming.”
