Osun Election Result: By our own collation , PDP is ahead of APC — Fani-Kayode

Osun PDP Governorship Candidate: Iyiola Omisore and former Minister Femi Fani-Kayode

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, [PDP], Femi Fani-Kayode, has responded to claims that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress [APC], Rauf Aregbesola, is coasting to victory in today’s governorship election in Osun state.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES via telephone, Mr. Fani-Kayode said the tallying of the votes was still going on and that it was therefore too early to award victory to any of the candidates.

“As far as we are concerned, by our own collation, we are ahead,” the former minister said. “We defeated them (APC) heavily in our strongholds and in their strongholds, the race has been very close.

“All these claims that they have won is not true. It is disinformation and we advise that people wait for INEC to announce the authentic result.

“I can tell you that it is not over.”

Analysts have however pointed at early results from polling booths as indicating a lead for the APC.

While the PDP candidate, Iyiola Omisore, performed well in parts of his Ife stronghold, the APC candidate appears to be leading in most parts of the state.

Results will however first be collated at the local government level before they are forwarded to INEC’s headquarters in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, for final collation.

The Chief Returning Officer for the election is expected to announce final result by Sunday morning.

    FFK is a junkie. Leave the guy alone na o. Im mind dey operate on another plane.

  • tolu

    mental problem at work

  • Okache

    I have always suspected Femi Fani Kayode to be largely suffering from a chronic case of mental instability and that is the reason he keeps moving from one party to the other.

    • Tunsj

      Severe mental instability indeed.

  • Amaka

    How can a man under the influence of demonic spirits and drugs produce a credible report. Faniweed is one reason Omisore should fail woefully.

  • Onimisi

    If FFK is into full politics let him come out 2018 for election! let me give him a hash tag #FFKforGov2018

    • Karim

      like Atiku right

    • Ayo

  • Ade#

    Cringing picture.

  • OBSERVANT OBSERVER

    Well done Femi cheering up and consoling Christoper your co-traveler in defeat? Looks like you specialize in professionalized grieving. Anyway Omisore, take heart, for your wind you cannot but reap whirlwind. This appears like a moment of truth. You can now peaceably vacate the stage. By the way, Femi happens to be one of the feather weight you relied upon to ride to Government house? I’m sure you realize now that he has no political value nor relevance.

  • olu isreal ibironke

    FEMI FANATICS, I EXPECT YOU TO HAVE WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLEEP NOW, YOU AND YOUR OMIWAHALA, JANDUKU, APANIYAN BROTHER SHOULD GO TO YOUR OGA AT ABUJA THAT OSUN YATO, WE CANNOT SELL OUR CONSCIENCE. POLICE AND ARMY AUTHORITY ARE DENYING THE ARRESTED FAKE POLICE WHILE OBANIKORO AND POLICE AFFAIRS ORDER THEIR RE,EASE, BUT THANK GOD, THAT YOU THE KILLER SQUAD OF JANJAWEED PDP FAILED WOEFULLY.

  • sammyctu ode

    Femi fani kayode’s father was a thug and traitor in the old Western Region so I am not surprised that his son is following his destructive path. This boy is the most dangerous boy on earth and can be classified as the Nigerian ISIS terrorist. Now in pdp, they (the so called pdp) should be wary of associating with him because tomorrow he can decamp to the republican party of USA which shows he is not a normal humanbeing.

  • Kenthy

    Pls where is Prophet Fayose? His anointing has failed Omioooo!!!

  • hammed

    I expect omisore to have conceded by now, maybe he wants to challenge the outcome of the result in court. Osun people believe in human and infrastructural development not pdp’s stomach infrastructure. Aregbesola ekun baba kabiruuuuuuu

  • Imole Ade

    Femi Fani-kayode … i will advise you to be a good leader. I am glad APC defeated your PDP. I am sure, the so called Omisore would have realize whom we want in Osun. Fools

  • Innocent

    This lady spoke my mind.

  • Okolobo

    The grand plan has been to make Nigeria ungovernable for Jonathan in line with Born-to-Rulecracy. You know the Boko Haram murderers. They are your brothers, cousins, sisters joined in that original mission to make Jonathan fail. Madam, stop blaming the victim. You can stop the killings – if you want to.

    • Adil

      They are also his drinking pals! His brother late General Azazi revealed so and was quickly kicked out before he returned to his maker in tragic and questionable circumstances.

    • murty

      Ungovernable by killing their brothers in the mosque, by forming civilian jtf to protect themselves after government failure to do so, their homes are destroyed and killing their families too .This is stale news. They northerners are also the once in cameroun , in chad and Niger, they are the ones in the car bombing of markets to kill their btothers just to make the country ungovernable. Please tell us outside of the war zone where have they governed well.

  • concerned9ja

    Why is this writer going in circles without hitting the nail on the head. This Jonathan government has been the most callous in the history of modern Nigeria

    • SquareX

      I disagree.

      When 10,000 Igbos were being murdered in the North in 1966 – over a period of > 4 months. Gowon pretended nothing was happening.

      Abacha killed up to 3,000 people in Ogoniland in the mid 1990s.

      Obasanjo killed thousands in Odi and Zaki Biam – and he’s still proud of that.

      This government is not different from others before it. It’s major crime is incompetence.

      All governments have been callous – the only difference is the North is impacted today, so Northern campaigners are out in force. During the 1966 Pogroms was anyone from the North bothered? No, they cheered on the crowds that murdered innocent citizens simply because they belonged to another ethnic group.

      The problem is not with the government, it is with us Nigerians. We are a wicked, callous people – only bothered about atrocities and misfortune when it impacts “our people”.

    Useless government
