Senate President Swears-In Senator Ademola Adeleke

Winner of Saturday’s Osun West bye-election, Ademola Adeleke, has taken his oath of office as a senator on the floor of Senate. He was sworn-in today by Senate President Bukola Saraki who administered the oath on Mr. Adeleke 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.
His emergence has helped the PDP number in the Senate rise to 42, with APC still standing higher at 66.
Currently, there are 108 Senators in the 109-member body. One seat, Anambra Central, is vacant following the nullification of the election of Uche Ekwunife.
