The Oyo State Independent Election Commission (OYSIEC) has declared the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Sheriff Adeojo the winner in the postponed Ido local government region election.

Mr. Isiaka Olagunju, President of State OYSIEC, made the statement Wednesday in Ibadan.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that OYSIEC postponed the election due to the omission of the Zenith Labor Party (ZLP) logo from the ballots.

Olagunju said that Adeojo emerged victorious in the election, having polled the most votes in the election.

He said Adeojo polled 19,744 votes to defeat the ZLP and ADC candidates who polled 637 and 122, respectively.
