The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP ) Ademola Adeleke, has been declared the winner in the just concluded Gubernitorial election in osun.

Adeleke emerged victorious in the governorship election after defeating Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress with over 25,000 votes lead from 17 local governments out of the 30 local governments in the state.

The results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission register explained that out of the votes counted across the state, Mr Adeleke received 403,371, unseating the incumbent, who scored 375,027 votes. Labour Party came a distant third with total votes of 2,729 votes.

As observed by CityMirrorNews reporters, Mr Adeleke’s good antecedent had been apparent throughout voting hours across the state on Saturday.

Recall CityMirrorNews had reported Mr Adeleke’s wins at Osogbo Local Government Area, receiving 30,401 votes out of the total 54,997 cast votes, while Mr Oyetola garnered 22,952 votes. He also made inroads into other opposition strongholds, including in Ile-Ife, where he pulled a surprise in Ife North Local Government Area.

The candidate’s victory was also buttressed by the inability of the ruling APC to garner as many votes as it anticipated from Iyiola Omisore’s stronghold in Ile-Ife. Mr Omisore used his popularity in Ile-Ife to deliver a slim victory for Mr Oyetola in 2018 after his third-party candidacy forced a run-off between the APC and PDP.

In this cycle, Mr Adeleke retained the support of his nephew David ‘Davido’ Adeleke and top PDP politicians like Atiku Abubakar, Bukola Saraki and some party governors.
