I heartily congratulate my dear brother and friend, the man always beaming with smiles, Senator Ademola Adeleke, now a ‘dancing Governor’ for his overwhelming victory and declaration as Governor-Elect of the State of Osun.
This victory of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State is so reassuring and a positive sign for a new Nigeria.
I congratulate the people of Osun State for turning out to cast and defend their votes.
I wish to appreciate the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the different electoral officers and security agencies for ensuring we have a largely peaceful election across the 30 Local Government Areas.
As Chairman of the PDP Osun Gubernatorial National Campaign Council, and with the support of our party leadership, I feel very happy that we all worked collectively to deliver this election to our party.
Thank you Governor Godwin Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo wrote:
I congratulate the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke, on his victory in the Osun 2022 governorship election.
The people of Osun State have made their choice through the ballot, choosing the PDP and our ideals of equity, unity and progress over the retrogressive policies that have had them in dire straits these past years.
We stand with the people of Osun in sending a clear message to Nigerians that we are prepared and ready to rescue them from the hardship and woes that they have been thrown into.
We thank the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for sustaining the electoral reforms which started in the September 19, 2020 Edo State governorship election. These reforms have ensured a peaceful, fair and credible conduct of the election, which gave the people the freedom to elect their preferred candidate.
As a party, we remain steadfast in our commitment to rescue Nigeria and are, by this victory, fired up to go into the 2023 general elections to win.
