The result of the primary was announced on Wednesday by the Ademola Seriki who led electoral panel. Ajimobi defeated his close rival, Fola Akinosun with 2,659 to 168 votes.

Announcing the result in the early hours of Wednesday, Seriki said that the exercise, which started around 6:30 pm on Tuesday was delayed due the late arrival of voting materials from the national headquarters of the party in Abuja.
