31-year-old PDP candidate Ogundoyin wins Oyo bye-election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), yesterday, declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adebo Ogundoyin, as winner of the bye-election for Ibarapa East State Constituency.

The seat became vacant following the death of the All Progressives Congress (APC) representative of the constituency, who was also the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Michael Adeyemo, on April 27, this year.
The PDP candidate polled 6,277, as against his closest rival and brother to the late Speaker, Kunle Adeyemo, of the ruling APC, who scored 4,619, while the Accord Party candidate came third with 2,859 votes.  The 31-year-old Adebo is the son of the late Eruwa-born philanthropist, Adeseun Ogundoyin, who died 27 years ago. 
The governor, Abiola Ajimobi who won the elusive second term as Governor of the state had lost two consecutive bye-elections within one year. This was in addition to similar re-run election way back in 2012 which the then Action Congress of Nigeria lost to the PDP in Oke Ogun area of the state.
The governor’s party lost Oorelope/Irepo/Olorunsogo federal constituency in 2012; Oorelope State Constituency in 2017 and Ibarapa East State constituency in 2018.
