Osun Re-run: What PDP Should Do – Lawyer by sirequity(m): 10:52pm On Sep 23, 2018
Inibehe Effiong, a Human Right Activist, has advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on what to do in the face of the recent inconclusive election in Osun State.

Citing closeness in votes margin at cancelled polling units, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the governorship election in the state inconclusive.

Some Nigeria and the PDP are tackling INEC over perceived political partisanship. Among them is, Bukola Saraki, Senate President, who advised the opposition party to seek redress in court.

But commenting on the development, Mr Effiong said though the PDP had the right to challenge the declaration legally, nothing good will come out of it.

“Can PDP challenge the decision of INEC? They can, but nothing will come out of it going by the reasons given by the Commission. PDP should prepare for the rerun and not dissipate energy and resources on fruitless legal niceties,” Mr Effiong advised the party on Sunday.

Effiong advised the 48 political parties involved in the election to beam focus and be ready for the supplementary election because the apex court in the land has never nullified election.

“Rather than dissipate energy on legality of the decision of INEC to declare Osun election inconclusive, the parties should prepare for the re-run. The Supreme Court has never nullified an election. Re-run, though a creation of INEC Guidelines, has been validated by the Courts.

“In terms of Section 179 of the Constitution, Senator Adeleke ought to be declared as the governor of Osun State. But INEC Guidelines empowers the Commission to declare election inconclusive where the margin between the winner and 1st runner-up is lesser than cancelled votes.

“Recent guber elections in Abia, Kogi, Bayelsa, INEC declared the elections inconclusive despite the emergence of a winner. In Abia, the Court of Appeal said INEC cannot do so when a winner has emerged but the Supreme Court gave judicial approval for re-run/inconclusive elections.

“2015 INEC Guidelines, pages 22 – 23, Paragraph 4, Section N issued pursuant to Section 153 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) empowers INEC to declare election inconclusive where the margin of victory is less than the number of registered voters in cancelled Polling Units.

“Under our current electoral jurisprudence, everything is against the Petitioner,” the legal practitioner said on his Facebook Timeline.

Someone claimed election result of Osogbo LG was tied to the back of a tortoise for onward transmission to INEC collation HQ in same Osogbo hence the late announcement. cheesy

And when APC realized they can't pull the 2015 kano presidential style election bogus result on Osun indigenes the party in connivance with INEC opted for inconclusive election.

APC and electoral fraud are like Siamese twins.

But it's still beyond me how civil servants who are being owed more than a year's salary could vote for APC, giving them mouth to be shouting inconclusive up and down.

Time to make money for those remaining 3500 voters who is going to determine the Governor of Osun state for the next 4yrs. Anyone of them that sells his vote less than 500k is a learner. This is not vote buying but Divine intervention

Fact is that there has never been a conclusive election in Nigeria since the MKO/ Tofa era.

That's if we are to go by the reality.

In this country where snatching of ballot boxes and disenfanchisement has been a norm.

During PDP all they did was allocate votes to themselves to cover the spaces.

Inconclusive elections shows more sincerity.

All of you want to Jill yourself on top Buhari matter. APC ain't fools you know. And all of you are here ranting, APC members are just sighting you guys.... Lol...

Buhari till 2023... Or let me say APC till 2023.....


Then, we will have another sets, then from anywhere and any party.... I will gladly support the best candidate.


Right now no best

Saraki is a desperate thief
Atiku is a desperate destroyer
The young ones aren't ready yet...


BUHARI is the best option even though he isn't perfect for us... But out of the imperfect, he is still the preferred.


Some people already shouting team Saraki..?

The same way you hated since 2015, you will come back to hate. Nonsense. PDP playing you and you're all believing.


Our plans are ready. We will change Nigeria for real. We are prepared for it.


APC! Till forever if they don't Bleep up Sha.
