Ogun poll: Abiodun coasting to victory as Adebutu trails behind

By James Ogunnaike, Abeokuta

The Ogun State governor and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dapo Abiodun, is currently leading candidates of other political parties in the results of the governorship election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday.

Abiodun has won 11 local government areas so far, while his closest rival and candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ladi Adebutu, has won in seven local government areas out of the results of 18 local government areas announced by INEC.

Meanwhile, the Senator Ibikunle Amosun-backed candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Biyi Otegbeye, does not win in any local government.

The electoral commission is, however, expected to announce results of the outstanding two council areas, after a short break.
