The Independent National Electoral Commission has fixed September 27 th for Osun State governorship election rerun .
The election umpire had on Sunday declared the election inconclusive based on an INEC technicality.





INEC Returning Officer and Vice - Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology , Akure , Prof Joseph Fowape , while announcing the results said the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Ademola Adeleke, polled 254 , 698 votes to defeat that of the All Progressives Congress , Gboyega Oyetola , who polled 254 , 698 votes .

However , due to irregularities which marred the election at some polling units in Ife North , Ife South and Orolu local government areas, including cases of card reader malfunctioning, ballot box snatching , among others, this led to the cancellation of 3, 498 votes recorded in the affected polling units.

Quoting INEC ’ s Standing Rules at the commission ’ s headquarters in Osogbo , the state capital , Fowape, said since the margin between the two leading candidates was lower than the registered cancelled votes , the election had to be declared inconclusive .



He stated that a rerun would take place at the affected polling units on Thursday , September 27, 2018.
