Davido came out full force to support his uncle Senator Ademola Adeleke and railed against perceived foul play in the now inconclusive governorship election in Osun State on Saturday.

The music star stomped for his uncle days before the election and continued to canvass support for him during the election.

Davido was on Twitter putting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and President Muhammadu Buhari to desist from tampering with the results of the election.

His tweets were aimed at sealing a victory for his uncle and his party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Senator Adeleke scored the highest votes by what could be the narrowest of margins in a governorship election in Nigeria’’s history.

The senator’s 353 votes lead over Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  was however not enough to declare him winner. INEC said a supplementary poll will now hold on September 27.

After votes from all the state’s 30 local government areas were collated, Adeleke won majority votes of 254,698 votes, while Oyetola of the APC came a close second with 254,345.

Although the election was widely adjudged as peaceful and fair, there was controversy over the results of a local government area may become the enduring memory most Nigerians would hold about the exercise.

The results from Ayedaade Local Government Area were altered upon arrival at the state collation centre in Osogbo hours after they had been publicly certified at the LGA collation centre by INEC’s own collation officer.

The controversial tampering saw a reduction of Adeleke’s votes by 1,000 from 10,836 to 9,836.

Davido was busy letting his millions of followers on Twitter know he’s fully monitoring the election and rooting for his uncle.

And many Nigerians, including Senator Ben Murray-Bruce and former Presidential aide Reno Omokri, has been praising the artist for his loyalty towards his uncle and involvement in the electoral process.
