APC wins Oyo LG Elections, clears all 610 wards, 35 LGAs

NAN reports that APC won all the chairmanship and councillorship positions in the 33 Local Government Councils and 35 Local Council Development Areas.

Announcing the results in Ibadan on Sunday, John Ajeigbe, the Chairman of Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC), described the election as free, fair and credible.

According to Kolapo Oladapo, the Chairman of SPN, the name and logo of his party, appeared on the ballot papers in spite of the candidate being denied nomination form.

The candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Saturday's local government elections held across Oyo state on Sunday emerged winners of the polls.

He alleged that they fell out with him when he asked them to allow other people within the party to, also, benefit, through holding of public offices in his administration.

Elections should not always be about winning, but about taking part. Many of them are coming to me, but, they are all my people.

"It was to the members of the group that the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu turned in 2015 to secure needed votes for the second term bid of Governor Abiola Ajimobi", it stated.
