Osun Tribunal: Oyetola Supporters Go Spiritual



Two Socio-political groups, Asiwaju Grass root Foundation (AGF) and Giomania have concluded plans to organise a special prayer on Thursday for the victory of Governor Gboyega Oyetola as Osun state Governorship Election Petition Tribunal is set to deliver its judgment on Friday.

It would be recalled that the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, had challenged the victory of the All Progressives Congress flag bearer, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola at the tribunal.

The groups in a statement jointly signed by their state Coordinators, Comrade Sikiru Tijani and Aremo Abdul Lateef Adegboyega and made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Wednesday said the decision to organise the prayer came on the heel of the love they have for Osun state and  the need for continuity of good governance in the state.

They said members of AGF and Giomania would converge on old Muslim prayer ground, opposite Osogbo Local Government Secretariat to pray for the victory of Governor Gboyega Oyetola at the Tribunal come Friday.

“The organization of this prayer become imperative because we cannot afford to take the state which has been experiencing monumental development in the last eight years back to abject poverty and penury.

“Our prayer will surely be answered because God is not unjust God. We believe in efficacy of prayer and since we are on the right side of justice, victory is guaranteed.

“We believe so much in our party and we are very optimistic that the Tribunal judgement will favour us. The people of Osun have spoken through their votes , they turned out massively during the gubernatorial election to elect Governor Oyetola , so there is no cause for alarm.

“Before the inception of the immediate past Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the state economy has been in comatose, but when APC led government came to power, the state begin to develop tremendously.

Expected at the special Prayer according to the groups coordinators are the party Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, Party Secretary, Alhaji Rasaki Salinsile, the two Senators-elected on the platform of APC and other law makers elected on the platform of the party.

They therefore, urged all APC loyalists in the state to remain calm and continue to pray as victory is sure on Friday.
