The Osun State Chapter of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has expressed hope in the 2022 gubernatorial election in the state.
The party, in reaction to the Anambra governorship election held on Saturday, November 6, 2021, is sure of vic
tory in the gubernatorial poll which has been slated for July 16 in Osun State.
A statement signed by Dr. Tosin Odeyemi, the NNPP chairman Osun state, said the emergence of Professor Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the Anambra governorship election is a sign that a victory by NNPP is not unachievable in Osun State.
The statement partly reads, “NNPP is set to take over Osun State from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and also defeat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the polls.
“We will leave no stone unturned ahead of the gubernatorial election in order to take over the state from the leadership of the APC.
“Victory is assured in Osun State come next year. We are also using this opportunity to inform Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State to be ready to hand over power to NNPP.
“Governance in Osun State has never been this worst. Right from the regime of Chief Bisi Akande to the immediate past administration of Aregbesola, the state has not been this bad.
“Oyetola does not see other party leaders as stakeholders in Osun State but rather see us as enemies.
“As APGA is preparing to take over in Anambra State, Oyetola should not look down on any party because the NNPP is also well prepared to take over the realm of affairs of Osun State from the APC.”
