The Strength Of Numbers In Returning Prince Dapo Abiodun To Power In Ogun State
We are looking at the results as released by INEC in the just concluded Ogun State gubernatorial election which was won by Prince Dapo Abiodun of APC in one of the fiercest electoral battles since the creation of the state in 1976.
There are 3 Senatorial Districts in the state with uniquely different sub nationalities .. The Egbas/Owus (Ogun Central); Remo/Ijebus (Ogun East); Yewa/Aworis (Ogun West)
Let’s see the results of the two leading parties, APC & PDP across the 3 senatorial districts …
GOVERNORSHIP 2023 ELECTION RESULTS. —- PDP vs APC
APC WON: Difference= 5,735
PDP WON: Difference= 12,810.
APC WON: Difference= 20,581
TOTAL : APC=242,517
APC WON with 13,506
Prince Dapo Abiodun,MFR & Eng Mrs Noimot Salako- Oyedele re-elected. 👏👏👏👏.
Now let’s break it down the figures down ….
APC won Ogun Central Senatorial District (Egba/Owu) with 5,735 margin lead over and above PDP.
Ogun East Senatorial District (Remo/Ijebu) is lost to PDP by a wide, resounding & unprecedented margin of 12,810. That’s home district of the two leading candidates, Prince Dapo Abiodun of APC & Mr Oladipupo Adebutuof PDP.
The votes from Ogun Central could not cancel out the deficit brought in from the home stead of the incumbent governor Prince Dapo Abiodun.
And now to Ogun West Senatorial District (Yewa/Awori) voted APC over PDP with a margin lead of 20,581 !!! That was the BOOM ! Wait a minute … APC won the election in Ogun State with a lead margin of 13,506 votes … that is squarely less than what Ogun West Senatorial District delivered. You will notice that the margin deficits recorded elsewhere were swallowed by the numbers brought in from Ogun West to return Prince Dapo Abiodun/Noimot Salako-Oyedele back to power. That’s the swing !! That’s the joker !!!
In Ogun West ….. Ado-Odo/Ota LG alone came with a margin lead of 8,024 votes over PDP representing 38.9% of the entire margin surplus of Ogun West.
Then let’s see this again, as a reminder … only two senatorial districts delivered with margin surpluses… Ogun Central with 5,075 & Ogun West with 20,581 margin surpluses. So the margin surplus from both performing senatorial districts is 26,306! Very Interesting.
Now, this swing LGA, Ado -Odo/Ota alone contributed 8,024 representing 30.5% of the margins surplus so recorded.
Now … what’s more interesting is that both performing senatorial districts, Ogun Central & Ogun West have 11 LGs, 6 from Central & 5 from West. Meaning that 1/3 (One Third) of total margin lead/surplus that won APC the election state wide came from Ado-Odo/Ota LG.
Now it’s time to savour this victory ……
