A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has disagreed with the Independent National Electoral Commission on their declaration of the Osun State govornoship election on Saturday inconclusive.
According to Omokri, given that the Peoples Democratic Party got a simple majority despite ₦16.7 billion paid to Aregbesola, tradermoni given to voters and security forces clearly in favour of the All Progressives Congress means the PDP won the election hands down.
He said this in a tweet after INEC had declared the Osun election inconclusive despite PDP’s Adeleke leading with 353 votes.
INEC explained that the total registered voters in the five polling units where elections were cancelled is 3,498 votes.
According to the electoral body, Since that figure was higher than the difference between the votes of the leading candidates, a supplementary election had to be conducted.

I disagree with @inecnigeria that Osun election was inconclusive. That @OfficialPDPNig got a simple majority despite ₦16.7 billion paid to Aregbesola, tradermoni given to voters and security forces clearly in favour of @OfficialAPCNg, shows that PDP won the election hands down!
