Minority Leader Loses Senate Seat
Mr Adeyeye emerged victorious at the end of the count of votes for Ekiti South senatorial district.
Mr Adeyeye defected to the APC shortly before the 2018 governorship election, after the controversial PDP governorship primaries.
The Returning Officer for Ekiti South senatorial district, Laide Lawal, said Mr Adeyeye polled 77, 621 to defeat his closest rival, Mrs Olujimi who scored 53, 741.
In the same vein, incumbent senator, Fasina Abayomi of the PDP was also defeated by an APC chieftain, Olubunmi Adetunbi.
