- Isiaka Oyetola of the APC, who has said winning the state election will be a foundation for Buhari’s 2019 reelection bid.
- Ademola Adeleke of the PDP, known as the dancing Senator. He is the brother of late governor and Senator of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
- Iyiola Omisore of the SDP, a former Deputy Governor and Senator.
Meanwhile, both the SDP and the APC have been granted permit to hold political rallies at the State capital, Oshogbo today.
Iyiola Omisore is holding his mega rally at the Freedom Park with many SDP big wigs expected, including Donald Duke, Olu Falae, Olu Agunloye.
