A re-run will be declared for the Osun State governorship election due to the margin of victory between the two leading candidates, Premiumtimes is reporting.

The election, one of the closest in Nigeria’s electoral history, was held on Saturday to elect a new governor for the state.

At the end of collation of results, Ademola Adeleke of the PDP won majority votes of about 254,698 while Gboyega Oyetola of the APC came a close second with 254,345 votes.


According to electoral rules, a re-run election can be so declared if the margin of victory in an election is lower than cancelled votes, such as in Osun where thousands of votes were cancelled in various local governments while the vote difference between the leading candidates was less than a thousand.

The difference between the two leading parties was just 353 votes but the number of cancelled votes was 35,498

In that case, rerun will be held in only affected areas where elections were cancelled. Premiumtimes reports that Thursday is being considered for the rerun, has INEC has now declared the election inconclusive

what I understand is that the rerun would be held in about seven places, where there were inconsistencies or interference or manipulations.
