Osun APC Primary: Aregbesola, Supporters Make U-Turn, Certify Election As Credible, Free, Fair

Barely 72 hours after describing the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governorship Primary, held last Saturday, as a “charade,” former governor and Interior minister, Rauf Aregbesola, and his retinue of supporters have in what appears to be a U-turn, endorsed the conduct of the exercise as one that was credible, free and fair.

As at the time of filing this report, they had approached an Abuja Federal High Court to declare their candidate the winner of the election on the premise that the eventual winner of the election, Adegboyega Oyetola, was not eligible to contest.

Rather than challenge the conduct of the exercise in court as the minister earlier claimed, they are now singing a different song.

Oyetola had last Saturday trounced Aregbesola’s candidate, Moshood Adeoti, polling 222, 169 votes to Adeoti’s 12, 921 votes.

After the poll, both Aregbesola and his candidate condemned the conduct of the exercise, claiming that it was a “charade,” and that they would be challenging the conduct in court.
