2023 Governorship Election: Makinde wins in Oyo, secures second term

THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Governor Seyi Makinde winner of the Oyo state governorship election, which held on Saturday, March 18.

Makinde trounced his closest rival, Teslim Folarin, a serving senator, by polling 563,756.

Folarin polled 256,685 votes.

Announcing the result on Sunday, March 19, the state Resident Electoral Commission, Tella Adeniran, returned the governor as the winner.

With the victory, the governor is set to govern the state for another four years.

Makinde, one of the G5 governors who dumped the presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 presidential election, was the only remaining governor among the G5 standing for election.

Three of the G5 governors had lost their election to the Senate on February 25. They are Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Uguanyi of Enugu.

Governor Nyesom Wike, who leads the team, did not contest for election.
