Singer, Davido celebrates uncle Ademola Adeleke’s victory on bike in Ede, Osun State.

Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleke has been declared winner of the Osun governorship held on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Fans of singer, Davido, have been hailing him as his uncle, Ademola Adeleke, has been declared the Governor-elect of Osun State.

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Sunday announced the Peoples Democratic Party candidate as the winner of the governorship election. A fan, Shegburg, tweeted “In anything you do, family first #Davido is a blessing to his family. But PDP una weldone”.

Ammy_Dee said “I’m over excited because my favorite won’t be trolled today, Congratulations champ!

#Davido#OsunDecides#OsunDecides2022” “Adeleke taught us one thing; patience, resilience, hope, love and hardworking and OBO passed a cogent message to the world; support your family in every good thing they do. Truly WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS. OBO TO THE WORLD,” Iyiola Afolabi tweeted.

Nearly four years after failing, by a small margin, in his bid to govern Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has overcome the biggest obstacle to his dream.

On Saturday, he achieved a hard-fought victory over the state’s incumbent Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state’s governorship election.

Senator Adeleke, 62, riding on the back of a campaign aimed at developing the state and retrieving what he says is his stolen mandate, secured 403,371 votes, 28,344 more than his closest rival, the incumbent governor. Governor Oyetola polled 375,027 votes.

It was enough for the Returning Officer of the election, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, to declare him winner and governor-elect.

“I declare that Adeleke Ademola Jackson Nurudeen of PDP, having satisfied the requirements of the law, is hereby declared the winner and he is returned elected,” Professor Ogundipe declared, sparking jubilation among Adeleke’s supporters.

Saturday’s election featured 15 contestants with the rematch of Oyetola and Adeleke drawing the most attention.
