Senator Ademola Adeleke, on Saturday, won the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the September 22, 2018 Governorship election in Osun State.

Adeleke polled 1, 569 votes to beat his closest rival, Akin Ogunbiyi, who scored 1, 562 votes, a difference of seven votes!

Candidate Fatai Akingbade placed third with 52 votes, while Nathaniel Oke came forth with just three votes.

Before the announcement of the winner, the process turned rancorous as some candidates demanded a recount of the votes. But Seriake Dickson, Governor Bayelsa State, Chairman of the primary election committee, roundly rejected the request and proceeded to announce the results.

Meanwhile, it was jubilation galore in the camp of Adeleke, who didn’t fail to thrill his fans with his usual dance steps.
