Osun Rerun: Davido To People of Osun State
Ahead of the Osun governorship rerun election, Davido has urged voters not to be hoodwinked by “sugarcoated promises”.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared the governorship poll inconclusive, announcing that a rerun will take in seven polling units in four local government areas of the state.
The music star’s uncle, Ademola Adeleke, is the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election.
The singer on Wednesday posted a message to the people of the state, seeking their support for the PDP.
He wrote: “To all patriotic Osun state citizens. On the road to #Osun2018, I salute you for all the mileage you have covered thus so far during this election. I salute your courage, resilience and support Adeleke the dancing senator, soon to be the cheerful and dancing governor & our party at large.
“I salute your ability to vote and deal with the poor governance & incumbent administration, I salute your struggle in this keenly contested election in the history of your state.
“It should be noted that Osun state is not an annex of Lagos but state of its own and such all sorts of political suzerainty should be rejected, expunged and decimated. Don’t be sugarcoated by their blatant promises.
“As you cast your votes tomorrow for the re-run, vote PDP. We solidarise with you, OBO.”
Before the election, Davido performed in campaign rallies in various parts of the state.
The singer is believed to have flouted the bye-laws of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) by campaigning for the PDP and partaking in politics.
