How Adeleke “danced” his way to Osun Government House

It is sweet revenge for the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleke as he trounced emphatically the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and sitting governor, Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola in Saturday’s Osun governorship poll.

Adeleke had almost danced his way to the State Government House four years ago but his slim victory over Oyetola in the election was upended by the APC, which deployed all tricks in the book.

Both Adeleke and Oyetola had run neck and neck, scoring about 255,000 apiece. A rerun poll in a few wards across the state had ensured victory for Oyetola with about 423 votes.

But this time round, Adeleke won in the first ballot with a staggering margin compared to his margin of win in 2018 in the first ballot.

To consummate his victory, Adeleke won in 17 of the 30 Local Government Areas (LGAs) while Governor Oyetola won in 13.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the results of the governorship election conducted on Saturday on local-givernment-by-local government basis, prelude to announcement of the final announcement of the overall result.

INEC’s Returning Officer for Osun State governorship election, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe formally declared the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate, Adeleke as the winner and governor-elect of Osun State.

“I declare that Adeleke Ademola Jackson Nurudeen of PDP, having satisfied the requirements of the law is hereby declared the winner and he is returned elected,” Professor Ogundipe announced.

In total Oyetola of the APC polled 375,027 votes while Adeleke of the PDP claimed 403,371 votes.
