The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared governor Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress (APC) the election winner, with 276,298 votes to Adebutu’s 262,383 votes. Biyi Otegbeye, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship candidate, received 94,754 votes.

However, Adebutu rejected the results and vowed to use all legal means available to challenge Abiodun’s victory.
Addressing party members in Abeokuta, the state capital, Adebutu accused the state Returning Officer, Kayode Adebowale, of subverting the will of the people by declaring Abiodun the winner of the election.

Adebutu claimed that the governorship election was the worst in the country’s democratic history.
He, however, cleared INEC of wrongdoing, saying the commission is still an institution that Nigerians must protect.
Instead, Adebutu cursed those he labeled as bad eggs, claiming that God would punish them appropriately.
He said, “We are not blaming the INEC. INEC is our institution and we must protect it. But for those bad eggs, God will punish them appropriately.
“What I saw in the elections is politics of intimidation, politics of harassment, politics of subversion. This was the first time in the history of our democracy where people were harrased, intimidated and threatened not to come out to vote.
“A lot of injustice have been done, I feel very aggrieved because we see a lot of inconsistencies. We are law abiding before they (INEC) made that declaration we informed them, we petitioned them to show that that declaration was willful.
“We recognized that everything that happened in this election, we must contest it, because it was subversion of our democracy. If we fail to contest the outcome of the election, we are killing this nation.
“Subversion of our democracy, 42,000 people have been disenfranchised. And when they disenfranchised 42,000, they now said they are leading by 13,000 votes, so those 42,000 don’t need to vote.
“Whereas the same thing happened in Kebbi and Adamawa, but it’s okay, that rule only applies in Kebbi and Adamawa, it does not apply to Ogun state because a declaration already exist. Don’t blame INEC, it is not INEC’s fault, it is the declaration the man (REC) from Ibadan has done, but I believe at the tribunal it will be corrected.”
