The Deputy Minority Whip and member of the House of Representatives representing Ijebu-North/East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency of Ogun State, Segun Adekoya, has failed in his bid to secure his seat.

Adekoya, popularly known as the “Attacker” who contested under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, lost to the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Adegbesan Joseph.

Announcing the results, the Returning Officer, Adeyemi Bamgbose, said Adekoya polled 25,450 votes while the APC candidate garnered 35,708 votes.

Meanwhile, a three-time governorship candidate in the state, Gboyega Isiaka, has been declared winner of the Egbado-North and Imeko-Afon Federal Constituency election.

Isiaka was the governorship candidate of the People’s Party in 2011, 2015, and African Democratic Congress in 2019, but failed in his bid to become the governor of the state.

But, in 2023, Isiaka was given the APC ticket for the House of Representatives seat and was declared the winner of the election on Sunday.

He was declared the winner of the election by the Returning Officer, Prof. Idowu Adeosun, at the collation centre located at Omidokun Hall, Ayetoro, in Egabdo North Local Government Area.

Adeosun announced that Isiaka scored a total vote of 29,543 while his closest rival Olusoji Titus Eweje of PDP polled 17,760 votes.

Also, a former member of the House of Representatives who represented the Egbado-south Ipokia federal constituency, Abiodun Akinlade, has been declared the winner of the election.

The Returning Officer, Prof Ola Jacob, announced Akinlade, the candidate of the APC, as the winner.

He said Akinlade scored 26, 171 to defeat the PDP which polled 22, 573.
