The former Governor of Osun State and one of the chief promoters of the African Democratic Congress (APC), Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola got more than he bargained for on Saturday when he was roundly beaten in his polling unit at his Okuku country home in Odo Otin Local Government by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In fact, Oyinlola’s party, ADC came third in the former Governor’s polling unit. In the result, APC’s Gboyega Oyetola scored 286 votes; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Ademola Adeleke got 63 votes while Fatai Oyebade of Oyinlola’s ADC scored a mere 42 votes.
It would be recalled that in the 2014 election, Oyinlola equally lost his polling unit to the opposition.
In other result, APC won in Ward 4 of Ife South Local Government, polling 976 votes. The Social Democratic Party (SDP) scored 648 votes to come second while PDP scored 515 votes.
