The Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, said on Sunday the All Progressives Congress (APC) would take a position on the state’s governorship election after studying the results.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had in the early hours of Sunday declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Ademola Adeleke, as the winner of the election held across the 30 local government areas of the state on Saturday.
Adeleke scored 403,371 votes to defeat Oyetola who polled 375,027 votes in the election.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, the governor said APC leadership had taken cognisance of the outcome of the election as announced by INEC and would respond appropriately after studying the results and consulting with critical stakeholders in the party.
He urged his supporters to remain calm and directed security agents to maintain law and order in the state.
