Thursday’s supplementary contest will be a straight battle between Adeleke and Oyetola, as the rerun will hold only in the seven polling units where results were cancelled.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced Thursday September 27 as the new date for a rerun after Saturday’s inconclusive Osun State governorship election.

Announcing the results on Sunday afternoon, Joseph Afuwape, INEC’s Returning Officer, had 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.

Since the total number of cancelled votes (3,486) exceeds the difference between the two leading parties (353), Afuwape said it was impossible for him to declare any party as winner.
