The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in Osun state, Ademola Adeleke, has said that the people of Osun State have shown that ‘tyrants’ can be forced to submit to their will.
He made this known while responding to the votes he got during the election which was declared inconclusive by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC).
He said he was honoured to have had such considerable votes across all local governments of the state despite the “blackmail” during electioneering campaign. He appealed to the people to rededicate themselves to the “struggle”. He said:
“I send my appreciation through this medium to Osun voters who find me worthy of their votes. Your votes humbled me and further strengthen my resolve to truly serve our people,” he said in a statement issued on Sunday evening.
“Despite all the blackmails and persecution, you stood by me; you voted for me and you defended your votes. You adopted me as the rallying point of the redemption movement. Words cannot express the depth of my appreciation.
“We will get to the promised land. It started well and it will end in praise to our dear God. Let us rededicate ourselves to the struggle. You have proved that with determination, the most powerful tyrant can be forced to submit to the will of the people. I appreciate you all.”
