If the Peoples Democratic Party had its way, its candidate in Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, would have been declared governor that day.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that members of both parties canvassed for votes in Osogbo, Orolu, Ife North and Ife South, where the re-run will be taking place.
Omisore gave the conditions when the Chairman of the PDP Campaign Council for the election and President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, led to delegation to his home in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The Council said rather than resort to threats, the PDP could either go to court or decide not to participate in the supplementary election of September 27.
INEC had on Sunday declared the Osun State governorship election inconclusive, adding that fresh ballot will be conducted in seven areas in four local government areas.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the party’s candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, should be immediately declared winner of the election
Saraki, in a statement signed by him, expressed dismay over the decision by INEC to declare as "inconclusive" an election in which a candidate won the highest number of votes and fulfilled the condition for geographical spread.
A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has told the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare the Peoples Democratic Party the winner of the Osun State governorship election.
The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the process was conclusive and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, won the election.
The declaration was made on Sunday by INEC in Osogbo, the Osun State capital
To emerge victorious, a candidate must score at least 25 per cent of votes in two-third of the state’s 30 local government areas
This brings to 15 the number of local government results declared at the headquarters of INEC in Osun State, located in Osogbo, the state capital
