OrderPaperToday – The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole may have suffered a slip of the tongue while commenting on the recently conducted Osun governorship election won by Gboyega Oyetola of the APC.
In a video that is currently circulating on the internet, the APC Chairman advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to accept the “pain of rigging” in the election before quickly correcting himself by replacing the word “rigging” with “defeat”.
“We won and PDP lost. I think that for democracy to flourish, only people who can accept the pain of rigging…sorry, of defeat should participate in election,” Oshiomhole said in the video recorded from a Channels TV news programme.
Recall that Gboyega Oyetola of the APC was declared winner of the Osun Governorship election ahead of PDP’s Ademola Adeleke who led the votes in the first ballot before the election was declared inconclusive by INEC last Sunday.
Following a supplementary election held on Thursday, the APC candidate overturned the deficit to emerge victorious even as PDP claimed that the rerun election was rigged to favour Oyetola.
