Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has advised former Governor of the state, Adegboyega Oyetola to accept defeat, saying that his victory was from God.

Adeleke’s advice was contained in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olawale Rasheed, and made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Tuesday.

He was reacting to a recent comment credited to Oyetola on his possible return to power.

The former governor had said at a prayer session organized in Osogbo by APC members to welcome him to the state on Monday, that he heard from God that he would return to office as governor.
