Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has won the governorship primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state on Saturday. Aiyedatiwa received a total of 48,460 votes out of the total votes cast in the 18 local government areas of the state.

On Sunday, the Primary Election Committee, chaired by Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State, made the result public. The APC primary was held across the 203 wards and 18 local government areas of the state amid protests by some of the governorship aspirants.

At least 16 members of the party contested the ticket in the April 20 primary. They are as follows: Aiyedatiwa, Prince Diran Iyantan, Prof. Dayo Faduyile, Chief Olusola Oke, SAN, Wale Akinterinwa, Mr. Jimi Odimayo, Mr. Gbenga Edema, and Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim. Others include Mr. Diran Iyantan, Ife Oyedele, Brig. Gen. Olamide Ohunyeye (retd), Mr. Soji Ehinlawo, Mr. Morayo Lebi, Mrs. Funmilayo Waheed-Adekojo, and Mrs. Funke Omogoroye.

The national leadership of the party set up a nine-man committee headed by Ododo, while Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was appointed as the secretary. Governor Ododo addressed some of the angry stakeholders at the distribution center, noting that the electoral materials had been sent to the Ondo South and Ondo North senatorial districts, remaining in the Ondo Central (as of 10.30 a.m.).

However, one of the aspirants, Gbenga Edema, disagreed with the governor, noting that election materials were not moved anywhere. Edema said, "I have been here since 6.30 am, and I didn’t see any material taken out of this place."
