The incumbent governor polled a total of 292,830 votes, winning Jegede, who garnered 195,791 votes and Agboola with 69,127 votes.

The Saturday election that saw Akeredolu re-elected as governor was not without some form of violence, as a man simply identified as Gboye was stabbed with a broken bottle in Ward 4 unit 002 in Ijomu/Obanla.

An unidentified man escaped death by the whiskers in Owo area of Ondo State on Saturday after he was caught allegedly asking voters to sell their votes while the Ondo State Police Command also confirmed that there was sporadic shooting at Pollíng Unit 11, Edo Lodge in Oke Ijebu, Akure.

The ZLP candidate, Agboola Ajayi, who cast his vote on Saturday at Apoi Ward II, Unit 4, in the state also alleged security compromise during the governorship election in the state.
