Days after the election, Davido, who was very instrumental to the success of his Uncle, was seen questioning INEC on why they had not issued the Certificate of Return to his uncle after 48hrs.
The singer took to his Twitter page yesterday 19th of July to probe INEC on what was causing the delay.
“48hrs after our @AAdeleke_01 victory at the Osun Gubernatorial elections, we are yet to receive our certificate. @inecnigeria should we send you fuel money? LOL
Please no one should tamper with the will of the Osun People! Issue the certificate as required by Law! 💡 “
In response to this, the electoral commission has proceeded to issue the certificate of return to Ademola Adeleke today 20th of July.
In a letter directed to Senator Ademola Adeleke, INEC assured that the Certificate of Return would be issued to the Osun State gubernatorial winner by 10 a.m today 20th of July.
