Adeleke secured 403,371 votes to defeat his closest contender, Oyetola of the APC, who polled 375,027 votes.

According to NAN, Oyetola said the APC had taken cognisance of the results of the governorship election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He, however, added that the party would respond appropriately after studying the results and consulting with critical stakeholders of the party.

Oyetola urged his supporters to remain calm, and called on the people of the state to go about their businesses without hindrance.

The governor also directed security operatives to ensure maintenance of law and order
