This was contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Ismail Omipidan on Sunday.
The governor called on his supporters to remain calm, and the people of the state to go about their businesses without let or hindrance.
The statement read in part, “Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has taken cognisance of the results of the governorship election in the state as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Sunday.
“He, however, noted that the party would be responding appropriately after studying the results and consulting with critical stakeholders of the party.
“The governor also called on security operatives to ensure maintenance of law and order. He has, therefore, directed security operatives to take adequate charge so as to prevent break down of law and order.”
Recall that TNG had reported that Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP was returned elected after defeating his closest challenger and incumbent, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, and 13 other candidates, scoring a total of 403,371.
Oyetola got 375,027 votes and won in 13 local government areas of the state to come second in the election.
