Breaking: INEC declared Osun Election Inconclusive Fixed Thursday For Re-run

The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared a re-run for the Osun State governorship election due to the margin of victory between the two leading candidates.

At the end of collation of results, Ademola Adeleke of the PDP won majority votes of about 254,698 while Gboyega Oyetola of the APC came a close second with 254,345 votes.

According to electoral rules, a re-run election can be so declared if the margin of victory in an election is lower than cancelled votes, such as in Osun where thousands of votes were cancelled in various local governments while the vote difference between the leading candidates was less than a thousand. In that case, rerun will be held in only affected areas where elections were cancelled.

The re-run of the election has been scheduled to hold on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
