Nigerian musician, Davido, was very active and vocal about the Osun election and its follow up rerun which had his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke, as the candidate of the Peoples Democractic Party (PDP) for the governorship seat in the state.

Following the outcome of the rerun election last Thursday,the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared Gboyega Oyetola of the APC as the winner of the governorship election in Osun State.

Oyetola polled a total of 255,505 votes after the collation of the results of the supplementary election in seven polling units across four local governments, while PDP’s Ademola Adeleke polled a total of 255,023 votes to come second.

This was different from the initial election which held last Saturday in which Davido’s uncle scored the highest number of votes, beating Oyetola with 353 votes but INEC declared the election inconclusive and ordered a rerun because the number of cancelled votes in the seven polling units was far higher than the margin by which Adeleke beat Oyetola.
