The Ogun State chapter of Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday elected a  former spokesman to the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Organization in 2019, Chief Segun Showunmi as it's standard bearer in the 1023 governorship election.

Sowunmi who emerged as the Party Governorship Candidate at the primary election held in Abeokuta  polled a total number of 554 votes to defeat his close  opponents, Otunba Jimi Lawal who polled 30 votes while Ladi Adebutu scored 15 votes.

Announcing the result, the Returning Officer and Chairman Electoral Committee of the PDP governorship Congress, Hon. Abayomi Daniel said Showunmi scored the total votes from the 702 votes cast out of 728 accredited delegate list.

Abayomi said, "As a PDP national officer and by the power conferred on me by the national leadership of our party, Otunba Segun Anthony Showunmi having polled the highest number of votes is hereby elected as the PDP governorship candidate in Ogun state for the 2023 governorship election."

In his acceptance speech, Showunmi thanked the national leadership of the party and the delegates for reposing their mandates and trust on him.

He said, "Well, I will thank God Almighty who has made today possible, I thank the delegates and members of my campaign team and leadership of the party. I am particularly happy that under a very peaceful atmosphere, we have compiled with all other relevant laws, and I have emerged successfully the PDP governorship candidate in Ogun state."
