Senator Ademola Adeleke has been declared the winner of the Osun Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primary, ahead of the Sept. 22 election in the state.

In the primary which held today, he polled 7 more votes than his closest rival Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi

His closest challenger, 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.
