Sen. Mudashiru Hussein has emerged the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress for Osun West Senatorial District bye-election.

Hussein, who was earlier disqualified by the APC Screening Committee and Appeal Committee, was eventually cleared by the National Working Committee of the party to contest the election.

Although, the former Senator was unopposed in the primary election held in Osogbo where he scored 2, 412 votes.

Earlier, younger brother of late Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, Demola Adeleke, who was also unopposed, emerged the PDP flag bearer after scoring 343 votes at the party’s primary held in Iwo Local Government Area of the state.

Meanwhile the Independent National Electoral Commission had fixed July 8 for the bye-election following the vacuum created by the death of Adeleke on April 23.
