The candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s governorship poll in Osun, Iyiola Omisore, wrote to the electoral body, INEC, over the elections and the alleged announcement of the results by the APC.
Omisore, who personally signed the petition titled, Protest on the August 9, gubernatorial election, said that the candidate of the APC, Rauf Aregbesola flouted provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 by announcing results.
The petition reads:” I hereby condemn the APC candidate , Raufu Aregbesola declaring his own version of the results without recourse to INEC. With the facts of results, its apparent that the PDP candidate , Dr. Iyiola Omisore is leading.”
PDP rejects election result
The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has rejected the election result declaring Governor Rauf Aregbesola as
the winner of the governorship poll.
The PDP agent in the election and State Publicity Secretary, Mr.
Bola Ajao, distanced the party from the result after the
announcement of the outcome of the poll by the Returning Officer,
Prof. bamitale Omole, on Sunday morning, in Osogbo.
Ajao refused to sign the election results form given to agents at
the INEC office.
The party spokesman faulted the process of the election, saying
some of the figures published were unacceptable.
He said the party had earlier written a petition to INEC,
complaining about the election process in some units.
He said, “I cannot sign. We cannot accept the outcome of the
election. My principal, Iyiola Omisore, knows the next line of
action. We will decide what to do. We have earlier written a
petition to INEC to establish our complaints.”
