My defeat, a test from God, says Gov Oyetola
GOVERNOR Gboyega Oyetola today said his defeat at last Saturday’s governorship poll was a test from God.
The governor spoke at a meeting held at Osun Government House, Oke Fia, Osogbo with party leaders and other supporters.
Oyetola said rumours had been spreading around that he had run away after the election result was announced.
He said he also heard the PDP saying he was trying to convert government assets to his, urging the party faithful not to worry about them, as they were simply playing to the gallery.
“I summoned all of you here to assure you that the present situation is just a temporary setback. It is a test of our resolve by God and we will continue to stand by him. Ours is God’s project and we shall not despair.
“Go back to your various units and wards across the state and continue with regular party activities, hold your meetings regularly. We have bigger projects ahead and we must not allow this temporary set back distract us,” Oyetola said.
Oyetola charged the APC members and supporters not to allow the outcome of the election cause dissatisfaction and division within the party, adding that the APC remained the ruling party in the State.
He preached peace and unity among party leaders and members across all levels, from ward to local government to state. The governor also advised party members who have grievances to channel them to the appropriate quarters and stop expressing them in the social media, in the interest of the party.
Oyetola noted that as Governor of Osun, he would continue to govern with fear of God and love of the people, just as he reiterated his commitment to the well-being of the people and development of the State
