#NigeriaDecides2019: Dapo Abiodun defeats Amosun backed Akinlade in Ogun State

The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC)  in Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has defeated Adekunle Akinlade of the APM to emerge winner of the Ogun State governorship election. 

Abiodun polled a total of 241, 670 votes while Akinlade polled 222, 153 votes to emerge winner with a slim margin of 19,517 votes.

This victory comes as a surprise to political pundits because the incumbent governor, Ibikunle Amosun threw his support behind the APM candidate against his party’s candidate in the election. This had led to the crisis in the state that snowballed into the disgraceful stonning of President Muhammadu Buhari during an APC rally in Ogun State.
