Osun Election: Davido Calls Out INEC for Failing to Present CoR to Ademola Adeleke
Nigerian singer, Davido has called out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for failing to present the Certificate of Return to his uncle, Ademola Adeleke, the winner of the 2022 Osun State gubernatorial election.
The 29-year-old took to Twitter on Monday to slam the commission for the delay, pointing out that it could be interpreted as an attempt to change the results.
“ 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!,” he tweeted.

Issue the certificate as required by Law! 💡

He wrote, “God won. Osun won. You won. We all won! Imole Deeeeee ❤️.”
