In what appears to be a taunting message, Afrobeat superstar, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has called out the Governor of Osun state, Gboyega Oyetola for his failure to congratulate the State Governor-elect and Davido’s uncle, Ademola Adeleke after his recent victory at the polls.
In Davido’s message to the Governor on Saturday via his verified Twitter account, he questioned why the Governor has failed to demonstrate the spirit of sportsmanship by congratulating his uncle just like he did for the Governor in the 2018 election which Davido alleged was stolen by the Governor.
The tweet reads,“ Your excellency sir @GboyegaOyetola when will you congratulate the Incoming governor of your state @AAdeleke_01. in 2018 my uncle congratulated you even though it was stolen … do the right thing baba . one love ”.
It would be recalled that Adeleke of PDP was declared the winner in the election held last month after he scored 403,371 votes while the incumbent governor, Oyetola of the APC polled 375,027 votes.
However, rather than congratulating Adeleke for his victory, Oyetola has now challenged the PDP candidate’s victory at Tribunal.
The governor submitted a 1,250-page petition, challenging the results in 749 polling units out of 3,763.
He challenged the results on grounds of over-voting and others.
