Why we lost Osun election to PDP – APC chair, Adamu
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu has given the reason why his party lost to the opposition party, PDP at the just-concluded Osun governorship election.
Adamu in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service on Tuesday said the APC will now return to the drawing board “and change our tactics”.
“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.
Osun defeat doesn’t in any way mean that we will lose at the general election. 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.”
“This has shown that we have a big task ahead. We must see what we can do and change our tactics.
APC candidate and incumbent governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola lost the election to his main rival, Ademola Adeleke, of the PDP.
