Senator Ajibola Basiru, the National Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), expressed his belief that those who both benefited from and betrayed the party during the recent general elections in the state would face divine retribution.
The event was held to demonstrate support for Basiru’s appointment as APC national secretary after losing the presidential and state House of Assembly elections in Osun State.
It was widely believed that the party’s defeat was a result of anti-party activities conducted by certain influential figures in the state.
Basiru thanked those party members who supported President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other APC candidates during the elections, urging them to remain steadfast as they would ultimately be rewarded for their loyalty.
Those that had benefitted from the party and still betrayed us, we have handed over their matter to God. If you know you are tired of the party, leave, but don’t stay and still work against it. Those that betrayed us are now disappointed.
I want to thank all our supporters for standing with the party. APC garnered over 113,000 votes in Osun Central Senatorial District in the last election. President Bola Tinubu won Osun Central Senatorial district in spite of all the intimidation and harassment by the thugs.
I refuse to go to tribunal to challenge the result, God who created me knows his plan for my life and I give thanks to God. I appreciate those who stood by me especially in Osogbo and Olorunda. They proved to the people who claimed they owned Osogbo they are not the owners of Osogbo but the indigenes.
