Adeleke: ‘With Due Respect, I Have Not Heard About Oyetola’s Loss’ – Adamu

 

Don't Come Crying To Abuja After Elections - Adamu Warns APC Members

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has denied knowing the loss of incumbent Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola in the last Saturday’s election.

Speaking on Arise TV on Sunday, Adamu said he just heard about the outcome of the election from the presenter.

According to Adamu, he has not formally heard the result announcement from the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).

He said: “With due respect, my dear brother, I am just really hearing this from you. I have not formally heard the announcement from INEC, which is the independent commission responsible for elections in Nigeria.

“I have not heard from them yet. Once I hear formally from INEC, I can be in a position to answer this particular question.”

“Between me and you, I have not formally heard from INEC and I have not read the papers you are talking about. I do read some papers on my table before I have my breakfast but I haven’t done that today yet.

When asked whether the party would accept defeat if he finally gets to see the result and breakdown of the voting pattern, Adamu said until he confirms the result then he would state his position.

He said: “I don’t like pre-empting my situation. You need to be patient. Since you got the result, wait for me too to receive it. You can get back to me and I will be willing to talk about it.

“Until I hear from INEC formally or my people in the control room confirm that it is the result, of course, I will abide by it. But hearing the result first from you is unacceptable. You are not INEC.”
