Oyinlola, wife lose at polling units

Ex-Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola

A former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] to the All Progressives Party [APC] on Saturday failed to deliver his polling unit to his new party, the PUNCH and Vanguard newspapers are reporting.

Mr. Oyinlola voted at Ward One, Unit Three. But the PDP defeated the APC in that unit by scoring 125 votes to the APC’s 61.

His wife, who voted at a separate polling unit, the reports say, also lost to the PDP at that polling units in Okuku.

The PDP won in unit 008 where the former governor’s wife voted. The PDP had 105 votes while the APC got 41.

Mr. Oyinlola dumped the PDP August 5 and made a speech critical of his former party at the APC’s final campaign rally held in Osogbo, the state capital that day.

At the rally, the former governor asked the people of Osun State to vote for Mr. Aregbesola, who succeeded him when he was sacked by the Court of Appeal in Ibadan in November 2010.

Mr. Oyinlola, who then invited two former governors of the state, Bisi Akande and Isiaka Adeleke, as well as Mr. Aregbesola to the podium during his speech, asked the crowd if they were the ones that voted for them in the past, to which they responded in the affirmative.

He admonished the crowd to do it again for Mr. Aregbesola.

He said the PDP candidate, Iyiola Omisore, could not be trusted because he was “self-centred, greedy and selfish.”

    Once he proved competitive at between 40-45% in Oshogbo, Ede North and Atakumosa so far, whittling down incumbency factor whilst pulling ahead by 250% of the average votes in the four local governments in Ile-Ife having 28% of registered voters, i can scientifically project that, except Raufu Aregbesola can win 80% of the votes in the two local governments in Ilesa, there is no doubt that Mr. Iyiola Omisore has clearly won this Oshun state governorship election, given he is also leading by 200% in the presumably safe local government of Odo-Otin.

      @ Pathfinder:

      Your analysis is informed but it is arithmetically wrong on at least one point. Omishore has about 25% of the votes so far in the polling booths’ results of Oshogbo. But those results are just 5% samples actually. But if the samples hold true, it means Omishore might lose Oshogbo by three to one at that rate, which could immediately cancel out his 250% lead in Ile-Ife.

      But so far Omishore seems to have done well in most unexpected places. See for example, although APC wins Ede North but with less than three hundred votes whilst the APC ex-Chairman, Bisi Akande, was defeated by PDP at his own polling booth in Ila-Orogun.

      In Ede North Punch newspaper reports the eventual result as follows: APC (1,353) PDP (1,068).

      But except in Oshogbo – which has 110,670 registered – where else is
      Raufu Aregbesola leading with twice the votes cast for his nearest rival in these early results published in any of the
      remainder 29 local governments, given that Ile-Ife alone has 266, 891
      registered voters – which is more than 25% of all Oshun state voters put together –
      and given that these early results show Iyiola Omishore of the PDP already having
      70% of the votes in Ile-Ife?

        I agree that once Iyiola Omishore got 70% of the votes in Ile-Ife and environs the election was lost and won. The voter strength in Ile-Ife alone is 27% of total registered voters.
