Obed Agwu.
Delegates from a total of 18 political parties participated in the election held at the INEC headquarters, Osogbo.
Speaking with journalists after his re-election, Odeyemi said he saw the victory as an act of God and promised to do more in his capacity in taking the Council to a greater height.
He promised to leverage on the successes recorded during their first term in office to do more so that IPAC can be an avenue of putting the sitting governor in Osun on his toes.
Odeyemi stressed that one of the major responsibilities of IPAC is to serve as checks and balance for any government in power and ensure that the dividend of democracy is equally distributed. He however promised that all shall be pursued to a logical end in the state.
Others re-elected executives include Simeon Adewale (Chairman), John Olufemi Adesuyi (Deputy Chairman), Muritala Adegboyega (Asst. Sec), Popoola Olatunji (PRO) among others.
