Award-winning singer, David Adeleke who is also known as Davido hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for strengthening the electoral process after the elections in Osun saw his uncle Ademola Adeleke emerge the winner.

Davido's prayer follows a congratulatory message by the president to his uncle and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

Recall that Ademola Adeleke won the elections after defeating Governor Adegboyega Oyetola in a rematch of the 2018 election.

The president in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Sunday, July 17, 2022, said the outcome of the election reflected the will of the people of Osun.

He said, “The people of Osun have expressed their will through the ballot. This is what democracy is all about: respect for the will of the people.

“The successful conduct of #OsunDecides2022 is a demonstration of the maturity and the commitment of all stakeholders, towards strengthening the integrity of the electoral process in Nigeria.

“I remain fully committed to leaving behind a legacy of credible elections in Nigeria.”

Quoting the last line of Buhari's tweet, Davido said, “You will leave a LASTING legacy! God bless you for this act alone sir!”

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced that Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to defeat Oyetola, the sitting governor who polled 375,027 votes.

INEC Chief Returning Officer for Osun and Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, announced the result on Sunday morning.

This is what democracy is all about: respect for the will of the people.
