There was tension in the hall when the ballot papers were sorted in two different baskets and the difference between the two aspirants appeared insignificant.

As agents had their eyes fixed on the baskets, supporters moved from one end of the hall to the other.

TheCable had asked Fayose to comment about the exercise and he said: “Interesting.”

He was later heard telling one of his aides: “Too close, I can’t believe it.”

Adeyeye polled 770 votes..

Reacting to his victory, Olusola thanked Fayose whom he described as his mentor.

He said the PDP would record another “16-0” in July election.
