The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared only one House of Assembly constituency election inconclusive in Osun as the Peoples Democratic Party won 25 seats on Saturday.
Official results obtained by the NPO Reports showed that the results of the Boripe/Boluwaduro were still being contested by both the PDP and the opposition All Progressive Congress which lost power last year.
Recall that the APC’s Gboyega Oyetola had lost to PDP’s Ademola Adeleke in the governorship poll in 2022.
The PDD defeated the APC in the presidential and National Assembly polls conducted on March 18 winning all the three senatorial districts and the nine federal seats into the House of Representatives.
Candidates of the PDD declared winners are as follows:
Olayiwola Taofeek -Ede South.
2• Adewunmi Kofoworola Babajide -Ede North
3• Adewumi Adeyemi -Irekandu -Obokun.
4• Olujinmi Asagade -Ejigbo
5• Rotimi Ogunrinade -Egbedore
6• Folorunsho Ogundare -Ayedaade
7• Abiola Waheed Ibrahim Inaolaji -Irewole/Isokan.
8• Yode Oyewusi -Ife North
9• Abiola Awoyeye -Ife Central
10• Prince Olumide Fatunmise -Ife South
11• Lawrence Olalekan Adeoti -Ife East
12• Dele Lawal -Osogbo
13• Ajibola Olaide Kolawole -Olorunda
14• Adekunle Oladimeji -Irepodun/Orolu.
15• Rabiu Adeshina Aranda -Iwo.
16• Ibrahim Afeez Abiodun – Olaoluwa
17• Oderinwale Elisha -Ayeedire.
18• Ajibola Micheal Olakanmi -Oriade.
19• Boluwaduro/Boripe (Inconclusive)
20• Adeyemi Tajudeen Akinlolu- ( Ifelodun )
21• Egbedun -Odo-Otin.
22• Prince Kashope Abolarin -Ifedayo.
23• Bajepade Akinloye Sikiru -Ila.
24• Wale Akerele -Ilesha-West.
25• Olatunbosun Diran -Ilesha East.
26• Sanmi Areoye -Atakumosa West/Atakumosa East.
It was gathered that results of some of the units are contested by the PDP in the Boripe/Boluwaduro State constituency which comprises Iragbiji, the hometown of the former Governor, Oyetola.
The PDP was said to be alleging over-voting in some of the polling units from Iragbiji.
Oyetola is in court challenging the victory of Adeleke. The Appeal Court has reserved judgement for a yetp-to-be-fixed date in the matter.
Should Oyetola win at the court, Oyetola faces a hostile House of Assembly which is due to be inaugurated in June.
