The PUNCH reports that after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Adeleke the winner of the Osun governorship elections on July 16 under the People’s Democratic Party, the incumbent governor petitioned the Osogbo Electoral Tribunal to challenge the senator’s victory.
In the polls, Adeleke won in 17 Local Government Areas with a total of 403,371 people voting for the PDP candidate, while Oyetola came in second with 375,027 votes.

Osun state elected governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, will not be distracted, regardless of the stones hurled at his train by opponents and opponents. The elected governor of the PDP remains focused with his eyes only on the ball.
“The inauguration of a special youth advisory committee on Thursday is testament to the fact that Senator Adeleke is off to a flying start. As the governor-elect said at the inauguration, the commission will address rising unemployment, underemployment, drug abuse, violence and cultism, internet fraud and the loss of hope due to failed leadership among the youth.
The governor-elect also said his administration will revitalize the National Youth Council, support the expansion of faith-based youth organizations, upgrade the digital economy as an economic driver, and establish innovation incubation and development centers across the state. .
“The fact that the commission will also bridge the gap between young and old is another testament to the youth-focused commitment of Senator Adeleke, whose cousin is the popular singer, David Adeleke, aka Davido,” Olajengbesi said.
