It could be recalled that the current Senator, Adelere Oriolowo, was denied the chance to go for a second term. He was denied the ticket for being part of The Osun Progressives (TOP), a factional APC group believed to be sponsored by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

Being a member of The Osun Progressives (TOP) is regarded as anti-party activity. Therefore, Senator Oriolowo couldn’t make the list. His name was replaced by Dr. Raheem Amidu Tadese in June 2022.

Despite the fact that he was denied the senate ticket for the second term, Senator Adelere Oriolowo endorsed Dr. Amidu Tadese at the flag-off Campaign in Iwo. Many people were astonished to see Oriolowo declaring his support openly for Amidu Tadese after distancing himself from the party for a while after the denial of the senate ticket.
