Speaker of the Osun House of Assembly Timothy Owoeye stated in his speech that Oyetola will run for re-election as governor of the State before July 5, 2023.
He also expressed confidence that Tinubu would be chosen to serve as the nation’s next president.
He called the results of the Osun governorship election held on July 16, 2022, a short-term setback.
The Osun Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) reacted by labeling utterances attributed to Oyetola and the State House of Assembly Speaker as hallucinations.

The Osun PDP announced this in a statement that was signed by Sunday Bisi, Director General of the Atiku Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Osun State, and Akindele Adekunle, Caretaker Chairman of the Osun PDP.
Also charged with breaking his oath of office, undermining the authority of the State, and conspiring to destabilize a State when he is in charge of a branch of government, Speaker Owoeye was accused by the duo.
They said, “We at first decried the failure of the Speaker to respect the office he is occupying, to rise above petty partisan politics and to tell the truth to Mr Oyetola who of recent has been listening to devil’s whispering. We condemn in no small measure the lack of courage and demise of statesmanship demonstrated by the House Speaker who today openly revolted against the will of Osun People and who has unashamedly embraced ignoble falsehood and propaganda of a defeated Oyetola.
“We had thought the House Speaker had risen to act like a statesman, unfortunately, Mr Owoeye today failed the test.

“We are at the same time alarmed that a sitting House Speaker has openly exposed a sinister agenda to undermine the integrity of the judiciary by making proclamations on a matter that is subjudice. We want to put it on record that it is against protocol, against democratic sense of judgement and against all civilized norms to pre-empt judicial outcomes. The House Speaker should apologize to the judiciary, retract his reprehensible statement and summon courage to exit the puppet garb of the supposed leader who is worshipping at the feet of a man incapable of listening to the voice of God.”
The Osun PDP urged voters in the State to vote against the APC in the general elections in February, arguing that Ademola Adeleke had been legitimately elected.
