And I told you that I am a miracle governor and prayed that the miracle robs off on Osun election. And so, we are all happy and excited.

Let no man play the role of God. And I have also told you that this election is not only for Osun state, this election was a national election, this election was a test election for 2023. I warn you PDP is coming 2023.”
