    Factors that worked in favour of Akeredolu are many, potent, obvious and not as trivial as an alleged INEC complicity which is an alibi put up by PDP for its surprising defeat at the poll: the winner’s fortuitous but timely disengagement from Tinubu which was an action that freed him of costly godfatherism; the defection of a large number of influential grassroots leaders from the PDP to APC; Jegede’s tie to the apron-strings of Mimiko whose waning popularity was becoming an obvious threat to his success at the poll; the desire for change from a regime that that was fast losing its essence; the lawsuits that have destabilized the PDP electioneering capability; the rightful rejection of INEC to act the scripts of the PDP by postponing the elections and save the party from the consequences of its self-inflicted crisis; there are many more such reasons. While the victory of Akeredolu may prove a healing of the crisis in the APC, the defeat of Jegede may worsen the crisis within the PDP and hasten its disintegration. Tinubu’s congratulatory message would be salutary in furtherance of the former while Mimoko’s congratulations may aggravate feelings of despondency and weaken the chances of a PDP recovery.
