the Chairman of the Governorship Primary Election Committee for Ondo State, Governor Usman Ododo, had on Monday declared Aiyedatiwa as the winner of the Saturday’s primary.

The Kogi State governor said Aiyedatiwa polled 48,569 votes to defeat his closest rival, Mr Mayowa Akinfolarin, who had 15,343 out of 95,178 valid votes.

The Ondo governor also thanked the national and state working committee of the party for ensuring that the “best candidate emerged” as the party’s standard bearer.

He also lauded other contestants for their sportsmanship and urged them to join hands with him to ensure the party’s victory in the November election.
