Controversy arose after National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu accused Oyegun of cheating during the primaries and called for his resignation.

Oyegun made his comments via a statement released on Sunday, November 27, following the victory of APC candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu in the governorship elections which held on Saturday, 26.

The statement reads in part:

“With the 2016 Ondo State governorship gone, the task before the party leadership is uniting the party and healing wounds.”

“The APC thanks the Ondo electorate for voting for the party in the keenly-contested election. The Ondo electorate have voted for the candidate with a proven track record of performance and who will bring about the kind focused leadership and multi-faceted development which the state deserves. The party assures that we will deliver on this expectation.

“Also, the outcome of the Ondo State governorship election powerfully demonstrates the confidence and trust by our people in the overall leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC-led administration. The party and the President hold sacred this trust.”

Tinubu also called for unity in the party after congratulating Akeredolu.
