The Governor Elect of Osun State, South West Nigeria, Senator Ademola Adeleke has narrated how President Muhammadu Buhari contributed to his victory during the Saturday’s governorship election.
Gatekeepers News reports that Adeleke spoke on Channels Television programme, Politics Today.
Adeleke said that he would have lost Saturday’s election to Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, if President Muhammadu Buhari had not signed the amended Electoral Act 2022 into law.
Adeleke also commended President Buhari for reaching out to him on his victory.
Adeleke said, “I feel good on my victory because the people of Osun State have been yearning for their stolen mandate.
“To be the second Adeleke that would govern Osun is not common. It is only God that can do that. God smiled on me and our family.
“Also, when I saw President Buhari’s congratulatory message, I said this is good for our country.
“I am planning to visit him when I receive my certificate of return. Most of the time, the opposition don’t congratulate one another.
“So, Buhari is trying to leave a legacy. If he had not signed the Electoral Act, there would have been room for rigging because they did that to me in 2018 but with the Electoral Act now the result was just flowing in without hindrance.”
