Ajimobi accepts result announcing his loss of Oyo South Senatorial district


Ajimobi lost to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Oyo South Senatorial District, Dr. Muhammed Kola Balogun.

In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr Bolaji Tunji, Ajimobi stated that he accepts the result despite observing some malpractices in the election.

“The results of the Oyo South Senatorial District election have been released by INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission) indicating that I lost to the PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) candidate, Ajimobi said.

“I hereby accept the result as announced. Although there were a number of grievous infractions and established electoral malpractices, I have decided to let go in the interest of peace. I, therefore, congratulate the declared winner, Hon Kola Balogun and our APC Senators-elect, Abdulfatai Buhari and Teslim Folarin.

“If I lose the ticket and the party was able to gain, then it is nothing to feel sad about. APC has done well but we can always do better. If we won two out of the three Senatorial seats and we picked nine out of 14 federal constituency seats, then we should congratulate ourselves.

“To the teeming members and supporters of our party who came out in their thousands to show their preference for the APC, I thank and urge you to keep the faith especially as we look forward to the governorship and the House of Assembly elections.

“With the impressive results we currently have, we should proudly go forth with greater sense of confidence and unity of purpose. Let us work together to ensure victory for our governorship candidate, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, and all our candidates for the House of Assembly.”

The governor also thanked people of the state for overwhelmingly voting for President Buhari in the presidential election.
