BREAKING: It’s ‘Inconclusive’! INEC Says No Winner In Osun Governorship Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Saturday’s Osun State governorship election “inconclusive”.

Announcing the results on Sunday afternoon, Joseph Afuwape, INEC’s Returning Officer, said Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled254,699, while his closest challenger, Isiaka Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had 254,345 votes.

Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) 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 winner,” he said.

He implored party agents to wait for a few minutes to get the date for a rerun between the two leading candidates.
