PDP Heads To Court Over Osun Gubernatorial Poll

Joseph Bakare

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has decided to challenge the declaration as inconclusive of the Osun governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The party said that the polls have already been concluded and results announced in all polling and the collation centers, thus bringing the exercise to its lawful conclusion and removing INEC powers to declare the election inconclusive.

The party in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary, said the law was clear on how the electoral commission can declare a result.

“Our electoral law is clear that once an election result is declared, INEC is bound to return a winner. INEC, in trying to play the card of the defeated All Progressives Congress (APC), contravened the law by refusing to announce a return, even when the declared results have thrown up a winner.”
