Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has described leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as, “mentally unstable.”
The Governor was reacting to the protest by some leaders of the party at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, over the conduct of the state governorship election.
Aregbesola said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after he formally presented the Osun State Governor-elect, Gboyega Oyetola, to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, were among the PDP leaders that staged a protest against the outcome of the election at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.
Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; and the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, had led the protesters to INEC office after they had earlier converged at the national headquarters of the PDP in Abuja.
Also among the protesters were Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State; former Niger State Governor and presidential aspirant, Sule Lamido; and Senator Dino Melaye, among others.
They want the electoral umpire to declare PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun election.
