The PDP candidate for the September 22 gubernatorial election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, also known as the dancing senator was absent at the governorship debate held on September 16, 2018
Osun State, since its creation, has seen five governorship elections and even before election would hold, many keen political watchers would have predicted correctly where the pendulum would swing.
However, the forthcoming governorship poll remains one without a clear favourite just days before the poll. It is also the governorship poll with the highest number of candidates so far. As many as 48 political parties are fielding candidates in the election.
Out of the lot, five candidates are prominent and anyone of them has the chance of winning the election. The five top candidates are Iyiola Omisore of Social Democratic Party (SDP), Ademola Adeleke of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Gboyega Oyetola of All Progressives Congress (APC), Fatai Akinbade of African Democratic Congress (ADC), and Moshood Adeoti of Action Democratic Party (ADP)
Only candidates of the ADC, Alhaji Fatai Akinade, APC, Adegboyega Oyetola, ADP, Moshood Adeoti and Iyiola Omisore of the SDP were in attendance.
