Osun Election Shows that Democracy Is Working - Tinubu

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu says the party's victory in the Osun governorship election shows that democracy is at work in the country.

Tinubu said this after he received Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun and the newly elected state governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola at his Resident in Ikoyi, Lagos on Friday.

Tinubu said that the people of Osun have exercised their rights and have chosen the best candidate to drive development in the state.

"The people of Osun, the state of 'Omoluabi' have demonstrated their strong determination, they have a good judgment, they have exercised their right to choose the best candidate for developmental programs in the state.

"When you look at those who were running, you have the best, the most glamorous, the most qualified, competent, calm and great candidate.

"That's what they have done to show that democracy is at work.

"Democracy is about the people, and people have equally exercised their right to be tolerant, patient, persevering and doing what is necessary to develop the economy of the state.

"And you need the most competent person that will perform.

"In leadership, you need a thinker and a doer that must be present in the mind, body and soul, that person who will carry the responsibility of the state and I feel that Mr. Oyetola fits perfectly," he said.

Tinubu urged the people of Osun to encourage and give maximum support to Oyetola.

"The rest is for the people of Osun state to rally round and give him the necessary support and encourage him to do well following the already built legacy.

"He already has a blueprint for the development agenda," he said.
