Davido's Uncle, Sen. Ademola Adeleke aka "Dancing Senator" Wins Osun PDP Governorship Primary Election

I sincerely hope Osun State is not in for a dance during the governorship election come September 2018. 

Senator Ademola Adeleke, who became senator after winning a by-election occasioned by the death of his brother in April 2017, has now emerged as the People's Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate in Osun State as he won Saturday’s primary election by polling 1, 569 votes.

In the primary which held today, he polled 7 more votes than his closest rival Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi. His closest challenger, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, polled a total of 1,562 votes, meaning Adeleke won the primary by the slim margin of seven votes. Fatai Akingbade placed third with 52 votes, while Nathaniel Oke made up the rear with three votes.

The primary election held at the GMT Hotel and Event Centre along Ring Road in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

Seriake Dickson, Governor Bayelsa State, who chaired the committee overseeing the electoral process, announced the results.

Adeleke would now go head-to-head with Gboyega Oyetola, who emerged candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday.
