That being said, Nigerians should not be surprised if the result in the coming Ogun State, Oyo State and even Lagos sways the PDP's way and hopefully the ever-crying APC would accept the defeat and not cry rigging! Icheoku also congratulates the Nigerian security officials for providing a safe environment for the electorates to freely exercise their franchise. Also President Jonathan must share in the success of the election for not putting himself into the middle of the election with a 'do or die' attitude unlike his erstwhile predecessor Baba Iyabo. Then the people of Osun State must be commended for trooping out en-masse to assert themselves. The president, Icheoku says maintained a high threshold of civility by letting Osun voters to vote their choice and allowed their votes to be counted and it counted. That the president and his PDP were magnanimous in the face of APC's provocations was commendable too.
Icheoku says losers in the election include Olagunsola Oyinlola for shamelessly losing even in his own voting booth, despite being the "Prince of Okuku". Like Baba Iyabo who lost his own voting booth in 1999, Olagunsola Oyinlola has shown he is a paper weight with no following in Osun State despite what he would like Nigerians to believe? Also the APC lost for earlier crying wolf of an election rigging but failed to subsequently congratulate and apologize to the organizers of the election for a successful outcome. Femi Fani Kayode also belongs to this category of losers because he had boastfully promised to deliver his home state Osun to the PDP but the result says otherwise and is now a long gone history.
Be that as it may, a win is a win and Icheoku hereby congratulates the APC and their Aregbesola on their victory. Whether the result is a testimony that "Yoruba Obas are useless" or that Bola Tinubu has found his lost mojo, the jury is still out and will remain out until 2015 when other Yoruba Southwestern States will conduct their respective elections. Until then, it is one Southwest State for PDP in Ekiti and one for APC in Osun. Admitted the Southwest is APC's primary turf, their proven grounds; and you wonder if the APC cannot sweep therein, where else outside this their primary constituency can they put up a spectacular showing. Anyway, Icheoku and other Nigerians await the answer in 2015.
