Akande-Sadipe, who currently represents Oluyole federal constituency in the House of Representatives was declared winner by the returning officer, Professor Olaniyi Babayemi.
Professor Babayemi said Mrs Akande-Sadipe polled fourteen thousand, eight hundred and ninety-one votes to defeat her closet rival, Mr Olawale Mogbonjubola of the People’s DemocraPartyarty PDP who had thirteen thousand and seventy-three votes.
