Nigerian musician turned politician, Abolore Akande popularly known as 9ice was reported to have lost the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party primary in Oyo state to run for the Ogbomoso North/Ogbomosho South/Orire Federal Constituency in the 2015 House of Representatives election. 9ice lost to a formidable opponent, Prince Akeem Oyewumi, who is the son of the Soun of Ogbomosho.
However, reports have it that 9ice is not taking the loss so nicely as he is claiming there was no election because it was rigged, and therefore the results are currently inconclusive.
In a press release by his campaign organization, it was said that 9ice declared that he did not lose in the election because it was not conducted in a democratic manner. 9ice further said “At this moment, the winner of the election has not emerged. Ogbomosho North delegates need to vote before the winner will be announced.”
