Davido says Ademola Adeleke, his uncle who won the governorship election in Osun, is yet to receive a certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
On Sunday, the commission declared Adeleke the winner of the state governorship election held on Saturday.
The ex-lawmaker, who was the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the poll, defeated Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Adeleke polled 403,371 votes to beat Oyetola who scored 375,027 votes.
But on Tuesday afternoon, the ‘OBO’ crooner took to Twitter to lament that his uncle is yet to receive a certificate of return since winning the election.
Please no one should tamper with the will of the Osun People!Advertisement
Issue the certificate as required by Law! 💡

“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?” he wrote.
“Please no one should tamper with the will of the Osun People! Issue the certificate as required by Law!”
A certificate of return is only issued to candidates who win elections freely.
Davido had earlier said his uncle is the “best person for the job.”
He also asked the people of Osun to give him one or two years and “witness the development he will bring to the state.”
