It has also been gathered that INEC has fixed September 27th, 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.
