Announcing the results on Sunday afternoon, INEC’s Returning Officer, Joseph Afuwape, said Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled254,699, while his closest challenger, Isiaka Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had 254,345 votes.
Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) polled 128,049 votes to place a distant third.
