Nigerians have taken to Twitter to drag the National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Iyiola Omisore, over the ruling party’s loss in the Osun governorship election.
Naija News reports that the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke, defeated the incumbent governor of the state and the APC governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, to win the election.
Adeleke won 17 local government areas in the state, while the candidate of the APC, Oyetola won the remaining 13 local government areas in the state.
The incumbent governor of the state gathered 375,027 votes, while Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to win the keenly-contested election.
The PDP governorship candidate was declared the winner of the exercise by the INEC returning officer for the Osun State Governorship election, Prof Oluwatoyin Temitayo Ogundipe, on Sunday.
Following the announcement, some citizens took to Twitter to mock Omisore over Oyetola’s loss in the election and also remembered his role in the 2018 Osun governorship election
