Senator Ben Murray Bruce and Reno Omokri have reacted to the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the Oyo state governorship election, which held on Saturday.
Seyi Makinde, the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP, polled 515,621 votes to grab the governorship seat of the state while Adebayo Adelabu of the APC scored 357, 982 votes, coming second place.
In their reactions, they hailed the people of Oyo for voting PDP, saying it’s a new dawn for the state. Ben Bruce on his part, prayed for the “spirit of liberty” to spread across the country like it did in Oyo state.
It’s a new dawn in Oyo State. Godfathers should not be stronger than the people. The real ‘constituted authority’ are the people. May we all learn a lesson from what happened in Oyo State. May that spirit of liberty spread to every nook of Nigeria till the people call the shots.
