Toluwani Borokini, Son of Most Rev. Simeon Borokini, the Anglican Bishop of Akure Diocese has lost his reelection bid to the Ondo state house of assembly.
Borokini, an APC candidate, was said to have lost to the candidate of the PDP for the Akure South Constituency 2 seat.
Borokini and three others, out of eight serving members of the Ondo State House of Assembly who sought reelection all suffered in Saturday’s March 18 Assembly election.
Elections were held in 26 state constituencies today in a peaceful atmosphere though with low voters turnout.
The serving lawmakers who sought reelection but failed include; Tomide Akinribido (Ondo West 1 PDP); Favour Tomomewo (Ilaje 2, ADC); Hon Taofeeq Muhammed (Akoko Northwest 2, APC) and Toluwani Borokini (Akure South1, APC).
However, four other incumbent lawmakers won their elections; Oluwole Emmanuel Ogunmolasuyi (Owo 1 APC/ Majority Leader); Oladiji Olamide (Ondo east APC); Ololade Gbegudu (Okitipupa 11, APC); and Abayomi Akinruntan (Ilaje 1, APC) who is winning for the third term.
Three female lawmakers will be part of next Assembly as female APC candidates won in Owo 1, Idanre and Ilaje 2 constituencies.
