The Osun State All Progressives Congress (APC) has picked a running mate for its governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
Benedict Alabi, from Ikire in Osun West Senatorial District, was confirmed as the party’s deputy govenrorship candidate for next month’s election.
Mr Alabi is from the same senatorial district as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Ademola Adeleke.
Mr Adeleke is currently the senator representing the district.
According to the APC’s Director of Media and Publicity, Kunle Oyatomi, who spoke with PREMIUM TIMES in a telephone interview on Tuesday, the party unanimously settled for Mr. Alabi after several meetings and consultation.
“He was picked through consensus agreement. The entire leaders from the Osun West zone picked him. We all reached consensus, no dispute,” Mr Oyatomi said
Mr. Alabi was one of the aspirants at the APC primary won by Mr Oyetola, the chief of staff to the outgoing Osun governor, Rauf Aregbesola.
