The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State, Sen. Teslim Folarin, has conceded defeat even as collation of results is still on going across the 33 local government of the state.
He conceded defeat in a radio broadcast on an Ibadan-based private radio station, Splash 105.5 FM, thanking his supporters for their support.
His words: “I thank our people for the support given to us during our campaign. It was humbling.
“For the eventual winner, I congratulate him in advance and promise to personally call him when he is declared the winner. For us, the people have spoken and we respect their wish. Thank you.” Folarin said in the broadcast.
Former governors Rashidi Ladoja (Accord) and Adebayo Alao-Akala (Labour) are still very much in the race against incumbent, Abiola Ajimobi, whom, judging from unofficial results seen so far, is in the lead.
