The Independent National Electoral Commission has fixed September 27 for the Osun governorship election run-off.

The date was set hours after the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Joseph Afuape, declared the poll inconclusive.

This comes as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ademola Adeleke and his All Progressives Congress (APC) opponent, Gboyega Oyetola had opened up a major lead on the 46 other candidates that participated in the poll.

Although Adeleke polled 254,698 votes, 353 more votes than Oyetola got, the number of voters meant a runoff would be needed before either one of them can be return elected as required by law.

On September 27, it will be up to the 3,498 voters spread across seven polling units to decide who will succeed Governor Rauf Aregbesola on November 27.
