It will go down in the history of Akoko politics that Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo fought many battles before he could get elected as a House member to represent Akoko North East/Akoko North West federal constituency. He did fight oppositions from within and outside. There was no way BTO, as he is popularly called, could have won the election in spite of opposition from a sitting governor if not for the enthusiastic support of the people. Tunji-Ojo eventually triumphed over the allied opposition against all odds with 20,988 votes and thereby recorded the second highest victory margin of 8,021 votes in the entire state, after Hon. Adedayo Omolafe.
