September 27 fixed for re-run of Osun State governorship election
INEC has fixed September 27th for Osun State governorship election rerun. The candidate of PDP, Ademola Adeleke, had polled 254,698 votes to beat that of the APC, Gboyega Oyetola, who polled 254,698 votes.
3,498 recorded votes were cancelled due to some unlawful activities which flawed the election at some polling units in Ife North, Ife South and Orolu local government areas, including cases of card reader malfunctioning, ballot box snatching, among others.
The Returning Officer and Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Prof Joseph Fowape, said since the margin between the two leading candidates was lower than the registered cancelled votes, the election had to be declared inconclusive. He stated that a rerun would take place at the affected polling units on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
