In his congratulatory message, Obaseki said: “I am delighted at your hard-fought victory in the Osun State gubernatorial election and I join millions of Nigerians in the country and beyond to heartily congratulate you and salute your tenacity.”
He added: “Your victory provides a fillip to the growing profile of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the preferred political party in the country.”
