INEC declares Osun Election inconclusive

Spread the love

The Independent National Electoral Commission has announced the results of the Osun governorship election in each of the 30 local councils of the state with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke having a slim lead of 353 votes over All Progressives Congress (APC) rival, Gboyega Oyetola.

But the commission has declared the election inconclusive because the margin of defeat is less than the number of cancelled votes

Peoples Democratic Party candidate Ademola Adeleke led the race with 254,698 votes, 353 votes more than his closest rival, Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress.

The margin was, however, less than the 3,498 votes in the polling units where voting was cancelled.

Consequently, the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Joseph Afuape, declared the poll inconclusive.

“Unfortunately, as the Returning Officer, it is not possible to declare any party as the clear winner of this election at the first ballot,”

“The Independent National Electoral Commission will announce a date when another ballot will take place. I hereby declare the result inconclusive.”

The electoral body announced  that a rerun should be held in polling units in four local councils where results were cancelled.

The polling units are in Ife North (1), Ife South (2) Orolu(3) and Osogbo(1).

Here are the results, council by council:
