The United States Mission to Nigeria has called on Nigerians to step up their effort in getting their Permanent Voters Card.
This call was made in a statement issued by the consulate on Monday to congratulate the citizens of Osun State on the successful conduct of the guber-election.
In a statement titled ‘Peaceful Gubernatorial Elections’, it hailed the concerted efforts of the Independent National Electoral Commission staff and security personnel.
The US noted that their conduct helped facilitate a secure process that reflected the will of the people.
“We encourage all Nigerian citizens to register to vote now so that your voice can be heard in the national and state elections in 2023”, the statement reads.
Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party defeated Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The former Senator won in 17 of the 30 local government areas after polling 403,371 votes; Oyetola got 375,027.
