Governor Abiola Ajimobi 
Two governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress have shown interests in being members of the Senate. Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has won the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for Oyo South Senatorial District.
The result of the primary was announced on Wednesday by the Ademola Seriki who led electoral panel. Ajimobi defeated his close rival, Fola Akinosun with 2,659 to 168 votes.
Announcing the result in the early hours of Wednesday, Seriki said that the exercise, which started around 6:30 pm on Tuesday was delayed due the late arrival of voting materials from the national headquarters of the party in Abuja.
The Oyo South senatorial district spans nine local government areas, which are Ibarapa North, Ibarapa East, Ibarapa Central, Ido, Ibadan North, Ibadan South-East, Ibadan South-West, Ibadan North-East and Ibadan North-West. Governor Ajimobi after being declared the winner applauded the electoral committee for conducting what he described as an hitch-free and smooth primary, despite the earlier delay.
In the same vein, The Yobe Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam on Tuesday in Damaturu picked the Yobe East Senatorial ticket under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 general elections.
Announcing the result, the Chairman APC senatorial Electoral Committee in the state, Amb. Dauda Danladi, said the governor contested the election unopposed.
He added that out of 2,282 accredited votes, Gaidam had 2,272 while 10 votes were invalid.
“Therefore, Gaidam has emerged the winner of the Yobe East senatorial zone.’’ In his acceptance speech, Gaidam reassured the people of good representation and his determination to serve them more as a senator.
“I shall bring more democracy dividends to my people as a senator,’’ he promised.
