All aspirants who withdrew from the primary of the party including the nephew of Senator Ademola Adeleke – Deji Adeleke had declared support for Babayemi.
Former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola described the primary election at Osogbo Township Stadium which was recognized by PDP NWC as invalid.

“He is the person who will make Osun better. He is Dotun Babayemi.
Those of us here are the ones following the law and order,”
However, at the Osogbo Township Stadium, the National Working Committee is holding another primary election.
