His strategy failed
In an update shared by Linda Ikeji, a man with the social media handle @dondekojo said that Kayode lost the election.
He went ahead and said:
"Politics is local. Eventual winner is 'more social', probably built strategic friendship way before. He got assistant head boy as consolation though."
