There he awaited the approach of the enemy. This is probably a good way to describe how the mighty are fallen as regards the governorship election of Osun State.
As Hon Rotimi Makinde was reported to have defeated the duo of Prof. Wale Ladipo, the former National Secretary of PDP, and Hon. Kola Adewusi an Ife Prince is standing as the deputy governorship candidate of PDP pairing with Senator Ademola Adeleke.
It was reported that this set of illustrious sons of Ile Ife voted at Ilode 1 of Ife East local government of Osun State, where Hon Rotimi Makinde who was reported to have been denied reps ticket stood in for Apc in what look like a fight of the titans in Ile Ife.
