The Grassroot Mobilisation Team of the All Progressive Congress has adjudged last Saturday’s primary election of the Party in Osun as credible and laudable.
The team, saddled with the responsibility of monitoring the election in Osun by the Party’s national secretariat, described the process as free and fair, and in line with democratic ideals.
In its final report to the national secretariat, the monitoring team also lauded the peace and order that characterised the process.
Presenting the report of its findings to the governor of Osun, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, at the Osun State Government House, Osogbo, the Grassroots Mobilisation Group dismissed insinuations that the election was marred by irregularities, adding that they were barren attempts to make the process appear not credible.
Comrade Olabode Oluwafemi, one of the signatories to the report, said the group had its team of observers spread across the 332 wards in the State, and they returned with evidences, including pictures, to validate their claims.
He therefore urged the governor of Osun not to be distracted by the unfounded assumptions being.peddled by a group of aggrieved people, adding that their arguments were not grounded in facts and figures.
He also lauded the security agencies as well as the INEC officials for their roles in ensuring a peaceful process, adding that they displayed a keen sense of professionalism all through the event.
In his remark, Governor Oyetola commended the monitoring team for their efforts at ensuring that the correct narrative from the Osun APC primary election gets the nod.
Responding to one of the issues raised in the report about reconciliation with aggrieved members, Oyetola referred the group his acceptance speech following the announcement of the election result, saying that he has continued to extend the olive branch to aggrieved members.
He however assured that necessary mechanisms are being put in place to ensure oneness and unity in the Party again.
Oyetola also commended the people of Osun for showing themselves peaceful and orderly. He called on them to continue to keep faith with his administration for the sustenance of good works.
