The election results also show that the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Senator Teslim Folarin won in only two (2) local government areas.
With this development, there are indications that INEC will declare Makinde the winner of the election in due course.
If declared the winner, Makinde will be the second governor to serve for two terms in the state.
The first governor to serve for two terms was late Abiola Ajimobi who governed the state between 2011 and 2019.
