Akinyelure received 58 votes, with Chief Clement Faboyede, the ex-Ondo State PDP Chairman, coming in third with 57 votes.

The legislator was believed to have sought his vehicles back from the leaders after being dissatisfied with the primary’s outcome despite the money and vehicles he allegedly used as mobilisation for the election.

Akinyelure, according to a party official, retrieved the vehicles he handed to Chief Segun Adegoke, a member of the PDP’s Board of Trustees, BOT, and Hon. Wole Akindiose, a former PDP Chairman in Ondo East and national delegate to the party’s upcoming convention.
