Abiodun sworn in for second term in Ogun

Prince Dapo Abiodun has been sworn in as the Governor of Ogun State for a second term.

Abiodun was sworn in today by the Chief Justice of Ogun State, Mosunmola Dipeolu, at 11:10 am.

The Deputy Governor, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, had earlier been sworn in at the event held at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.

Newsmen reports that the swearing-in ceremony coincides with Gov Abiodun’s 63rd birthday.

Abiodun, the Iperu-born businessman, defeated Ladi Adebutu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with over 13,000 votes to emerge the winner of the March 18 governorship election in Ogun.

Adebutu has since dragged Abiodun and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the election tribunal, challenging the outcome of the election.
