However, the APC won two Senatorial seats while the PDP candidate, Dr. Kola Balogun beat the incumbent governor, Abiola Ajimobi to clinch the Oyo South Senatorial Seat. The other notable Senatorial win went to Teslim Folarin, who was the People’s Democratic Party, PDP gubernatorial candidate in which he lost to Abiola Ajimobi in 2015, then he decamped to the All Progressive Congress, APC to win as Senator in 2019, and Abdulfatai Buhari.

Meanwhile, pundits are wondering what impact it would have on the gubernatorial election outcome next week, between the grandson of Chief Adelabu, popularly known as Penkelemesi , a flamboyant politician who died 60 years ago, Mr. Bayo Adelabu of the APC, and Engr. Seyi Makinde, a self made oil billionaire, entrepreneur and huge philanthropist, who regularly awards scholarships to needy students in Oyo state indigenes and residents. Makinde is of the PDP.
