The All Progressives Congress in Osun State has declared a seven-day fasting and prayer session to seek God’s favor in unseating Governor Ademola Adeleke of PDP.

Gboyega Oyetola, former Osun governor, and the APC had petitioned the election tribunal after Adeleke was declared the winner of the Osun governorship election held in 2022.

Oyetola claimed there was overvoting in 749 polling units across 10 LGAs of the state.

The Justice Tetse Kume-led panel had concluded sitting on the petitions and expected to deliver its judgment before the end of January.

With this in mind, the APC Acting State Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, asked members of the party to embark on prayer and fasting starting from Friday.
