Tambuwal said that the Osun people reposed their trust and confidence in Adeleke, because they could see his heart, full of love and concern for their wellbeing.

This victory is as a result of the sagacity, hardwork, teamwork, skillful campaigns, efficient resource allocation, openness and humility exhibited by the governor-elect.

Tambuwal also congratulated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the security agencies, election observers and monitors, the media and the people of Osun, who not only voted but ensured that their votes count.(NAN)
