Prof. Abdulganiy Raji, the INEC Returning Officer for Ogun State was making the announcement as at the time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, the State Caretaker Committee Chairman of APC, Chief Yemi Sanusi, said the victory of the party was expected because the people wanted a change.

He said, “Yesterday elections showed the wishes of the people. The turn out was very encouraging, everybody were ready to exercise their rights.

“The victory of the party is expected. If you look at the faces of the town for the past one year, people are really expecting a new person that will take over the government of APC, not that will take over from APC.  What Buhari government is doing at the top, people are satisfied.”
