Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ) Osun State Council, has felicitated with Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on his victory at the Supreme Court, which affirmed the legitimacy of his emergence during the September 2018 gubernatorial poll.
This was contained in a congratulatory message jointly signed by the Chairman, Kehinde Ayantunji and Assistant Secretary, Ademola Lawal .
The union commended the governor and his main challenger, Senator Ademola Adeleke together with their political parties and supporters for conducting themselves peacefully throughout the fierce electoral litigation battle, urging him and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to be magnanimous in victory.
It opined that the apex court’s pronouncement must serve as an impetus that should ordinarily spur him to do more in the quest to fulfil his electoral promises to the people of the state.
The statement read ” Osun NUJ congratulates governor Gboyega Oyetola on his victory at the Supreme court and charge him to see the legal triumph as an opportunity to fasten his belt and face challenges of governance squarely in order to justify the mandate of the people. We believe that on no circumstances should the unflinching support of the people be taken for granted.
“With the finality of the litigation that has brought no less distraction, the governor is expected to bring best hands onboard to enhance quality of governance.
“We therefore implore the governor to prioritise the welfare of the workers, and intensify efforts in addressing the security challenges in the state and pay more attention to infrastructure, health, education and industrial development to further improve the economy of the state, as we assure him our support towards the development of the state”.
