Governor Rauf Aregbesola has on Friday reacted to the protest by leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the outcome of the Osun Election.
Aregbsesola told journalists during a visit to the presidential villa that the protest is nothing but a charade an act of irresponsibility.
“The party that was defeated in the election is already in the tribunal. So, I don’t know what the protest is meant to do.
“It is a charade and an act of gross irresponsibility. After an election, the only option left for any responsible citizen is to go to the tribunal.
“If you are already in court and you are still doing a street protest, it is either you are not mentally stable or you need psychiatric attention.
The governor also appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the enabling environment for a free and fair election in Osun State.
Leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had earlier on Friday marched to the Abuja headquarter of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in protest.
They expressed displeasure at the outcome of the recently concluded Osun State Governorship election and demanded that INEC declare PDP candidate Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun election.
Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, were among those that led the protest.
