INEC Issues Certificate Of Return To Adeleke

Ademola Adeleke, winner of the Osun West by-election, has been given his certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Tuesday.

Adeleke became Senator-elect after winning Saturday’s by-election for the Osun West senatorial district.

With a majority of the votes in the state’s 10 Local Government Areas, Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, defeated his All Progressives Congress, APC, opponent, Mudashiru Hussain.

Adeleke won in nine of the ten LGAs where the election was held. This is a major feat considering the fact that APC had a stronghold on most of these LGAs.

Adeleke had 97,480 votes in  Iwo, Ede South, Ola Oluwa, Ayedire, Ejigbo, Irewole, Egbedore, Ede North, Awo, while APC got 66,116 votes.
