Panic As INEC Declared Osun Election Inconclusive, Fixes Date For A Re-run. The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the Osun governorship election inconclusive.
The INEC’s Returning Officer, Joseph Afuwape, who announced the results on Sunday afternoon, said the PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke, polled 254,699 while Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress had 254,345 votes.
Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party polled 128,049 votes to place a distant third.
However, Afuwape said that since the difference between the two leading parties was just 353 votes but the number of cancelled votes was 3,5498, no winner had emerged.
“Unfortunately, as the Returning Officer, it is not possible to declare any party as the winner,” he said.
Meanwhile INEC has fixed September 27th, 2018 for a re-run election
