She is elated! lol. Governor Abiola Ajimobi of APC has been declared winner of the governorship election in Oyo state. There has been a long standing tradition of governors not winning a second term in the state, but Ajimobi has apparently broken that record. His wife, Florence, couldn't hide her joy.
According to the results by the returning officer, Professor Ayobami Salami, Ajimobi won 327,310 votes, to beat close rivals, such as former governor, Rasheed Ladoja and former governor, Alao Akala.
