The party hailed the Osun Electoratendependent National Electoral Commission (OSEINEC), security agencies and relevant stakeholders over the conduct.

Its spokesman, Yekini Nabena, in a statement Sunday night, said while we the nation continues to improve on electoral processes and correcting some irregularities witnessed in the poll, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration deserved commendation for continually exhibiting commitment to ensuring that elections are more peaceful, transparent, credible and acceptable.

He added: “This is a departure from the situation under past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administrations where the people’s will was subverted and elections where manipulated. We hereby reject the PDP’s baseless calls that the inconclusive Osun governorship election is announced in its favour.
