From the official results declared in all the 16 local government areas in the state, Abdulrazaq led Atunwa with a margin of 216,792 votes. Atunwa is Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s anointed. The ‘O To Ge’ movement seems to have landed the sucker punch on Saraki with this latest development. Notably, the APC beat the PDP in all the local government areas.

Meanwhile, despite the presence of party agents at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital where the results were being announced, those representing the PDP boycotted the venue.
