Ademola Adeleke, who was returned winner in Saturday’s Osun West bye-election, has taken his oath of office as a senator on the floor of Senate.
Senate President Bukola Saraki administered the oath on Mr. Adeleke on Wednesday, moments after Senate approved the votes and proceedings of the previous day’s business.
He received his certificate of return at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission on Monday.
Mr. Adeleke, the younger brother of the late incumbent, Isiaka Adeleke, contested the Osun West Senatorial by-election, held last Saturday, on behalf of the Peoples Democratic. He defeated Mudashiru Hussein of All Progressives Congress, winning in nine of the 10 LGAs that constitute the senatorial district.
