Engr. Oyedele Hakeem Alao had emerged at the primary election conducted by caretaker committee of the party led by Pastor Akin Alamum, which was held in an hotel on Old Ife Road while Onigbinde emerged during the primary election held along Iwo Road-Ojoo Express Way, which was organised Mr. Michael Akinropo-led state executive of the party.
Just as Alao emerged unopposed, Onigbinde emerged through the nomination and affirmation by the delegates unopposed alongside three senatorial candidates, 12 house of representatives candidates and 32 house of assembly flag bearers.
