Davido and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola
Superstar singer, Davido Adeleke has taken a swipe at Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State after his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke, was announced winner.
Davido’s statement follows Oyetola’s earlier comment where he called for calm in his state while noting that he was still studying the results of the elections that led to his defeat on Saturday.
The singer’s advice read: “What you should be doing is calling to congratulate your successor. Forget studies.”
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Sunday morning, had declared Mr Adeleke as the winner of the Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
Announcing the results at the INEC Collation Centre, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, who was the Returning Officer, said that Mr Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to defeat his closet rival, Mr Oyetola, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who scored 375,027 votes.
