Speaking on the election, Chairman, Electoral Committee and Ondo state JNC Chairman, Comrade Opeyemi Oloniyo said the state NLC was unique as all the positions would be filled through consensus.
At the NLC SEC meeting recently in Akure, the Acting Chairman of the Congress, Comrade Tayo Ogunleye was confirmed as the substantive NLC Chairman after acting for more than seven months.

Former Ondo State JNC Chairman and current NCSU Deputy President, Comrade Sunday Adeleye is likely to lead the State NLC in the next dispensation.
