The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has reacted to the defeat of Governor Gboyega Oyetola in the just concluded Osun State governorship election.
We had earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared Senator Ademola Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the Osun State governorship election.
Adeleke scored 403,371 votes to defeat Oyetola of the ruling All Progressive Congress, who polled 375,027 votes.
The PDP candidate won 17 of the 30 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the Osun State governorship election with a margin of about 44,426 votes.
Reacting to APC and Oyetola’s loss, Aregbesola, a former Osun State governor, quoted a Bible verse, saying, “the Most High ruleth in the affairs of men….”
“Osun Le Tente,” Aregbesola posted on his Facebook page.
“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men – (Daniel 4:17).”
