Makinde is contesting against Teslim Folarin of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Adebayo Adelabu of the Accord Party.


So far, Makinde has 281,383 votes while Folarin has polled 128,972 and Adelabu has secured 21,899 votes.


There are 33 LGAs in the south-west state.


The announcement of the results is taking place at the state collation centre in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo.


The exercise, which is presently on recess, is expected to resume by 12:30pm.
