Reasons have emerged from the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, why his party lost the Saturday, July 16 Osun State governorship election.

He disclosed this in an interview with BBC Hausa, stating that the crisis within the APC caused the party’s defeat at the polls and not that the party was not capable of winning.

He said the party would do well in the 2023 general elections, as he claimed that the party ‘is still strong.’

“We lost the race not because we are incapable but because of the crisis within. We had a massive gathering of supporters a few days before the election in Osogbo. No one could ever anticipate that we would lose the election,” he said.

“Osun defeat doesn’t in any way mean that we will lose at the general elections. We only lost one state out of the 22 we have; you see, we are still strong.

“We will sit and check ourselves. We must ask ourselves what is right and wrong and what needs to be corrected.”

Recall that  the party’s candidate and incumbent governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola lost the election to his main rival, Ademola Adeleke, of the Peoples Democratic Party.

However, the governor and the APC in Osun said they are still review the results of the election.
