On his part, the former national chairman explained, “I do not have any such fears (of a crisis). The nation has matured much more than other people think. Voters and the general public have matured much more than a lot of people think.
“The issues in Osun are basically not national. There are lots of local conflicts and antagonism that gave rise to the kind of contestation that has occurred in Osun.
“What is important to the nation is that the APC government allowed democracy to prevail. The APC government allowed the people to freely express their will.”
