By: Ade Adeleke

After over 12 hours of voting in the indirect primary of the party, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) on Tuesday emerged the candidate of the All progressives congress, APC to contest the October 10 Governorship election.

He was declared as the winner of the governorship primary held at the Dome, in Akure, the State capital

According to the chairman of the governorship primary election, governor Yaya Bello, Akeredolu polled two thousand four hundred and fifty-eight votes to defeat other aspirants in the daylong primary election

The closest aspirant, Chief Olusola Oke who scored two hundred and sixty-two votes was followed by Mr Isaacs Kekemeke who recorded nineteen votes

Ambassador Olusola Iji scored nine, Nathaniel Adojutelegan alongside Olajide Adelami recorded four votes each followed by Olajumoke Ajasin-Anifowose who had two votes

Awodeyi Akinsehinwa and Ife Oyedele came out with one vote each while Bukola Adetula came last with zero vote while thirty-three votes were invalid votes in the exercise.

It would be recalled that Jimi Odimayo, Segun Abraham and Ifeoluwa Oyedele had stepped down for Akeredolu, while Kekemeke described the process as injustice and sham.

Addressing the gathering, governor Akeredolu encouraged the co-aspirants to work with together with him and see him as the custodian of their visions for the development of the state.
