Real reason we lost Osun election – APC chairman, Adamu breaks silence, hints on 2023 polls

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has blamed the ruling party’s failure to retain power in Osun State on the party’s internal crisis, Charmingpro reports 

In the July 16 governorship election, Gboyega Oyetola of the APC was defeated by Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP).

Adeleke received 403,371 votes, while Oyetola received 375,027 votes.

In response, Adamu told BBC Hausa that the outcome of the Osun election would not determine the party’s performance in the upcoming general election.

According to him, the party never looked like it would lose the election, citing massive support.

“We lost the race not because we were incapable, but because of an internal crisis,” he explained. A few days before the election, we had a large gathering of supporters in Osogbo. Nobody could have predicted that we would lose the election.

“Our defeat in Osun does not imply that we will lose in the general election.” We only lost one of our 22 states; you can see, we’re still going strong.”
