No fewer than 15 political parties will be fielding candidates in the July 16 Osun governorship poll. Some parties are perennial participants, while about five of the parties and candidates have been actively canvassing votes through many means.

From the incumbent governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, seeking re-election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, to the man he defeated in the 2018 poll, Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, there is also in the race, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi of the Accord Party, as well as the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Lasun Yusuf, who is the standard-bearer of the Labour Party, while Mr Goke Omigbodun is running the race to be governor on the platform of the Social Democratic Party.

While criss crossing the state, meeting people and speaking on their plans, the candidates prioritised job creation, agriculture, education, and security in their manifestos.
