Obasa’s message was contained in the congratulatory message released on Friday signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Musbau Rasak in Lagos.”This is a sweet but tough victory and could not have been achieved without the hardwork, resilience and steadfastness of all members and leadership of our great party, APC.

We are more happy that both the election and the rerun have been acknowledged and accepted widely as free and fair by local and international observers among whom is the widely respected US Consul General in Lagos. I say a big congratulation to the Osun State Governor-elect, Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola,” he said.
He also commended the local and national leadership of the party particularly the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; the National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Governor Rauf Aregbesola and other governors who contributed immensely to the success recorded at the polls.
