The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adewale Oladipo, has described the outcome of the Osun West Senatorial District by-election as a reflection of the wishes of the electorate.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday announced the PDP candidate as the winner of the by-election held in 10 local government areas of the district.
Oladipo commended INEC, security agencies and other stakeholders, especially the electorates for their peaceful conduct during the polls.
He said the peaceful conduct of the election had shown clearly that all hope was not lost in the nation’s electoral system.
”We are very happy as a political party; the outcome of the election reflected the wishes of the Osun West Senatorial District electorate.
”The future of the country is very bright, if INEC will continue to handle future elections in the country as it did in the Osun bye election.”
Oladipo also commended the Sheriff-led National Working Committee for allowing the people to pick the candidate of their choice.
He said with what happened in the election, the days of impunity in the running of the affairs of the party were over.
