The Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, has told his predecessor Adegboyega Oyetola to restrain himself from listening to the voice of the devil telling him that he would return to office.
Naija News recalls that while addressing members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Oyetola said he had heard from God that he would return to office as governor and that the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, would be elected president.
Reacting to Oyetola’s declaration via a statement from his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, the governor warned his predecessor that God does not condone electoral banditry and deceit.
According to him, “God is of justice, equity and honesty, not of electoral banditry and deceit.
“The holy books even noted that the devil’s whispering is real and no one should mistake the voice of the devil for God. Our Almighty God has spoken resoundingly in favour of a new Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke. Mr Oyetola should better be reading ‘auzubilahi mina shaytani rajeem’ so he could hear the true voice of God – that a new leader is anointed by divine will for Osun people.”
He urged Oyetola to accept his defeat and try to live with it adding that the people of Osun are have moved on and were at the moment enjoying “a new governance of openness, accountability, and responsiveness to yearnings and aspirations of the citizenry.
“Osun has launched a new chapter. This new leadership has returned state power to the people who are now feeling the new air of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Never will Osun be returned to the years of the locust,” he added.
