Ademola Adeleke aka ‘Dancing senator’ lost SENATE seat
Dancing senator and uncle of popular singer Davido, Ademola Adeleke, has lost his seat in the senate. In a keenly contested election last Saturday, APC’s Engr Lere Oriolowo, won the Osun West Senatorial District election.
Adeleke was not on the ballot box because he contested in the last governorship election in the state.
According to INEC, Engr Oriolowo polled a total of 102,147 votes to defeat the PDP candidate, Lere Oyewumi who scored 97,294 votes. Prince Dotun Babayemi of the African Democratic Party (ADP), came third with 42,915.
