Again, Excess Votes Recorded as Sharafadeen Alli Emerges as APC Oyo South Candidate in Second Primary
A former secretary to the state government of Oyo state, Sharafadeen Alli has emerged the winner of the Oyo South Senatorial primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The former council chairman, secretary to the state government and chief of staff in the administration of Ladoja, defeated late former governor Abiola Ajimobi’s in-law, Kolapo Kola-Daisi; incumbent and younger brother of the Olubadan, Kola Balogun; and former finance commissioner, Bimbo Adekanmbi.
He had 185 votes while Kola Daisi had 145, Balogun 84 and Adekanmbi 72 votes.
Meanwhile, another aspirant and winner of the first primary election, Kolapo Kola-Daisi, has called for the cancellation of the Oyo South Senatorial rerun primary election held on Tuesday.
He said his call was based on the fact that the number of votes casted was one number above the number of registered delegates.
A total of 489 votes were casted, whereas the number of delegates was 488.
In the meantime, this implies that Alli, who is the Maye Balogun of Ibadanland, will be facing an Ibadan Mogaji, Joseph Tegbe, who has secured the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the 2023 polls.
