Winner finally emerges in NWC-backed Osun PDP governorship primary

Recall that Adeleke emerged as the governorship candidate of the PDP in Osun after winning the primary election backed by the NWC.

Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, the returning officer and deputy governor of Bayelsa, said 1916 delegates participated in the poll.

According to him, Senator Adeleke polled 1887 votes to defeat his rivals. Dotun Babayemi, Akinbade Fatai and Akin Ogunbiyi each had no vote while Bamidele Adeleke polled one vote and Sanya Omirin had four.

Meanwhile, Babayemi had earlier won the parallel primary election backed by Olagunsoye Oyinlola, the former governor of Osun state.

The Oyinlola-backed faction held its primary on Tuesday at the WIDCOF event centre in Osogbo. Adelani Ajanaku, the returning officer of the exercise, announced the results.
