The Governorship Primary Election of All Progressives Congress in Osun State witnessed a large turnout of voters on Saturday, but members of the party loyal to the Minister of Interior alleged irregularities as the incumbent Governor, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, led in the early results. 

In the unofficial results so far, Oyetola is in the clear lead across the state. In Iragbiji, Oyetola scored 1,612 in his ward while Adeoti scored zero.

In Aregbesola’s ward in Ilesa, Oyetola got 309 votes while Aregbesola’s candidate, Adeoti, got 146 votes there.

In Ilobu, the third aspirant, Mr Lasun Yusuf, who is the former Deputy Speaker of House of representatives, got 10 votes in his ward while Oyetola got 323 there; Adeoti got 62 votes there.

The exercise was peaceful and the results follow the same pattern in most parts of the state.

At Ward 12, Gidigbo 2, Post Office, Iwo — the Ward of Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, the candidate endorsed by Aregbesola — the exercise was peaceful, but the process was slow as many were yet to be accredited to vote as of the time of filing this report.

The factional Chairman of the party, Alhaji Rasaq Salinsile, rejected the outcome of the party primary election and vowed that the result would be challenged appropriately.

Salinsile insisted that the primary election of the party was manipulated in favour of Oyetola and maintained that the result was not acceptable.
