“I salute your doggedness and courage my brother. I commend your industry and tenacity in the face of daunting odds. You have led our party to reclaim its stolen mandate in the previous 2018 Osun election. It is true that if falsehood travels for twenty years, the truth will overtake someday.
“There is no doubt that this victory will shut the doors against misgovernance, incompetence and crass opportunism of the All Progressive Congress in Osun State and our country Nigeria.
“You have reopened the windows of opportunities for our people to pursue their wellbeing in an environment of peace, liberty and orderliness thereby courting for themselves the blessings of prosperity and happiness which our Party guarantees.
“Once more, Ekiti people and I share the joy of this unique victory with you and our people in Osun as we earnestly look forward to reclaiming the government at the centre next February. It is a done deal.”
