INEC Declares Osun Governorship Election Inconclusive by koboko69: 1:59pm On Sep 23, 2018
The electoral commission, INEC, has declared the Osun State governorship election “inconclusive.”

The declaration was made by Joseph Fuwape, the presiding officer of the election at the INEC headquarters in Osun.

At the end of the collation of votes, the PDP candidate, Isiaka Adeleke, won majority votes of about 254,698 votes while Gboyega Oyetola of the APC came a close second with 254,345 votes. Both leading candidates had a difference of about 354 votes.

“Unfortunately as the returning officer, it’s not possible to declare anybody as the clear winner of the election on the first ballot,” Mr Fuwape said.

In as much as the declaration is in line with the constitution, it's OK by me. Nobody should wade into this matter with emotions and sentiments

The difference between the two leading parties is less than the number of cancelled votes.
So, the election is inconclusive.

E don happen

All ye that sit at home during election day claiming elections are not won/lost by single votes, you see yourselves. See the narrow margin, if only 1000 more people had come out to vote out APC instead of sitting at home and doing social media commentators...

As David has said! angry


Cjrane2:
I told PDP that INEC was instructed NEVER to announce PDP as winners if APC lost the elections.

PDP must up their game and follow results from every polling unit until it is announced correctly by INEC.

The next move of APC and INEC is to flood OSUN with soldiers and prevent PDP from monitoring the voting and they will suddenly announce APC has won the elections.

Without vigilance, APC is determined to kill anybody to subvert the will of the people.



This guy just said it all!!

No wonder sarrik made that statement!

Inconclusive. about 3000+ votes up for grabs.

Just that the rerun won't favour PDP because the affected areas are not their strongholds... Adeleke and PDP will need to beg Omisore, to help them at those IFE areas.

I don't expect APC to take those units lightly, so all manners of hooliganism, gangsterism and what have you should be expected, if it happens to be PDP in power, they will do same..We are talking about governorship seat.

That rerun will be tougher than the just concluded elections of the entire state.
