The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Returning Officer for the election, Professor Olajide Lawal, announced Adeyemi as the winner of the exercise.
Lawal said that Adeyemi polled a total of 88,373 votes to beat his closest rival, Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who scored 62,133 votes.
In a statement on Sunday, the PDP candidate vowed to contest the results, stressing that “illegality shall never stand.”
“I will challenge the temporal and evaporative victory of Adeyemi at the Tribunal. Victory attained by violence and fraud is tantamount to defeat..for it is momentary. It is not about Dino MELAYE, it is about Nigeria and our electoral system. I stay the course..not over yet.
