2023: Voting For Tinubu/Shettima Presidency Surest Path To A Renewed Hope For Nigeria – Oyetola
By Abdulkareem Haruna
Former Governor of Osun state, Adegboyega Oyetola, has congratulated Nigerians on the occasion of the New Year celebration with a call for them to approach the 2023 elections with renewed hope.
Mr Oyetola who is the Coordinator for Tinubu/Shettima 2023 Presidential Campaign Council, (PCC), had also asked citizens to vote for the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima presidential ticket of the ruling APC because they represent the new hope for Nigeria.
The former governor left office in November 2023 after losing an election in which he was seeking a second term.
He had called for “prayers, more sacrifice and commitment for the success of the 2023 General Elections.”
Oyetola who is currently challenging his alleged defeat in the Osun 2023 governorship election, noted that the call for a renewal of hope and faith became necessary because the current democratic dispensation is the longest in the country’s checkered political history, and as such all hands must be on deck to sustain and deepen it.
A press statement made available to The Humanitarian Times by the former governor’s media aide, Ismail Omipidan, quoted Mr Oyetola saying that “2023 presents us with another opportunity to sustain our democratic credentials, having enjoyed unprecedented 24 years of unbroken democratic experience.”
“We must, therefore, approach it with renewed hope and faith,” he said.
“I have absolute confidence in the ability of our Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, to build on the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, and by so doing, delivering accelerated economic growth and development to Nigerians. This is why Nigerians must vote wisely in the presidential election by voting for the Tinubu/Shettima ticket.
“As for Osun citizens, God will never forsake us as we celebrate this new year. God’s promise will come to fruition in Osun. The sun shall shine again, brighter and warmer, and the sustainable development and participatory governance that we enthroned in our first term, which were applauded by local and international organizations, shall be restored and put on a surer and better footing.
“I rejoice with Nigerians, particularly citizens and residents of Osun, on behalf of my family and the Presidential Campaign Council in Osun on the celebration of the New Year 2023.”
