The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has congratulated Ademola Adeleke for his victory in Saturday’s by-election.
Adeleke, who ran on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was declared winner of the by-election by the Independent National Electoral Commisson (INEC).
He polled a total of 97,480 votes, to defeat Mudashiru Hussain of the APC who secured 66,116 votes.

In a statement released on Sunday, Osun APC asked Senator Adeleke to put “partisan politics aside, to represent the interest of the entire people of his constituency.”
They also noted that the election didn’t go according to their expectations, but that in the spirit of democracy, they had accepted the result.
