“This is the first victory in the series of victories to come for our party, the All Progressives Congress, since the emergence of our Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as APC Presidential Candidate.
“The count has started, many more to come. This is a good development for us as we are gradually and willl completely take over,” Ojelabi said.
He, however, urged Oyebanji to be magnanimous in victory in the interest of the people of the state.
