BREAKING: INEC declares Osun election inconclusive
« on: September 23, 2018, 03:39:46 PM »
The returning officer for INEC, Adeola Fuwap, said that the election was declared inconclusive because while the difference between the two leading parties is 353, the number of cancelled votes is higher than the margin between the top candidates. According to Fuwap, a candidate will not be returned if the leading margin is less than the canceled vote.

He said the Osun gubernatorial election had a total of 3,498 eligible voters where elections were canceled. He also said there is currently no winner in the state as a supplementary election will be held at a later announced date to determine a winner.

He said: We had issues in some polling units. Unit 001 had a problem of ballot box snatching and 393 votes were cancelled. At unit 004, there was snatching of ballot and 387 votes were cancelled.
