Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has admonished the Independent National Electoral Commission not to be pressured into hindering the will of the people of Osun State on who leads them in the next four years.
Atiku made this known in Abuja on Sunday while commenting on the governorship election held in Osun State on Saturday.
While assuring that the PDP would win the election on Thursday, said that his party would resist any attempt by the All Progressives Congress to steal the alleged expected victory of its candidate, Adeleke, on Thursday.
“The people of Osun State have freely given their mandate to Senator Ademola Adeleke and the Peoples Democratic Party, and I urge the Independent National Electoral Commission to resist any and every temptation to be used to tamper with the will of the people of Osun State.
“I was in Osun on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, and I saw firsthand the love the people of Osun have for Senator Adeleke and the PDP.
“I told our people in Osun that their years of underdevelopment and backwardness will end with the election of Senator Adeleke and the PDP, and I stand by that promise.
“The attempt by the All Progressives Congress to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat will be resisted with every legitimate and democratic means at our disposal.
“As I said in my statement condemning the police invitation to Senator Ademola Adeleke this past Wednesday, I stand with him and the people of Osun. In good times and bad times, the PDP and I will always be with Senator Adeleke and the good people of Osun.
“I hereby offer Senator Adeleke and the Osun State chapter of the PDP my right hand of fellowship as they work to retrieve their victory, which is already in sight” he said.
