Rauf Aregbesola, Governor State of Osun

Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, in his congratulatory message to Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has described his victory as a triumph of the progressives.

In a statement in Osogbo by his Media Adviser, Mr. Sola Fasure, he said the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s candidate was a “hard fought and won battle that brought liberation to the people of Ekiti State.”

According to him, Fayemi’s affirmation was also an indication of the rising popularity of the APC across Nigeria.

This, he said was a swift sweeping of the electoral stakes in the country that began in 2015 and has continued till now.


“In spite of the challenges and the formidable opposition, the people of Ekiti stood behind the party and voted for our candidate on Saturday.

He expressed happiness that the victory has given the APC a fresh four-year mandate to provide leadership and good governance in the state.

“That victory signposts the wrap up of the South West by the APC, Ekiti State being the last bastion of the dying PDP dinosaur that has wreaked havoc in the region and Nigeria in general.

“It is a new dawn of progressivism in the South West and an opportunity to re-enact the golden era of the late Obafemi Awolowo, under whose progressive platform the region recorded unprecedented development, through regional integration and socio-economic cooperation.

Aregbesola also congratulated Fayemi’s running mate, Bisi Eggeyemi, the progressives in Ekiti State and across Nigeria, as well as the leadership and all members of the APC, who worked hard for the victory.
