Thursday’s rerun election in some areas in Osun State is gradually coming to an end as the collation of results has commenced.
As at press time, results are being gathered and announced in different polling units and collation centers in the state.
The supplementary election is between the candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
PDP’s Ademola Adeleke and APC’s Gboyega Oyintola are in the race to take over from incumbent Governor, Rauf Aregbesola.
We reported that Ademola Adeleke of the PDP led the race in last Saturday’s election with 254,698 votes, 353 votes more than Oyetola.
The margin was, however, less than the 3,498 votes in the polling units where votes were canceled.
Consequently, the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Joseph Afuape, declared the poll inconclusive.
