Osun State Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola has appealed to his supporters to remain calm after he lost his re-election to Ademola Adeleke of the PDP.
The governor said this in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, on Sunday, in Osogbo, the state capital.
He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had taken cognisance of the results of the governorship election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday.
The governor, however, noted that the party would be responding appropriately after studying the results and consulting with critical stakeholders of the party.
Mr Oyetola called on his supporters to remain calm, and the people of the state to go about their businesses without let or hindrance.
The governor also called on security operatives to ensure maintenance of law and order.
