The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Monday visited in Ede, Senator Ademole Adeleke, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party of the Saturday 22 September election which was declared inconclusive.

Saraki lauded Adeleke for his resilence, saying, “I visited the Governorship candidate of our party, Senator Ademola Adeleke, in Ede today to commend him and his supporters for their resilience and to let him know that we remain undeterred and determined to ensure that he becomes the next Governor of Osun State.”

The Osun election conducted over the weekend ended up inconclusive as the Independent National Electoral Commission said there were cases of ballot boxes snatching that occurred in some polling units during the election.

Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 254,698 votes, while Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scored 254,345 votes.

The Returning Officer, Prof. Joseph Fuwape, who is the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) mentioned the affected polling units to include Ife north, one polling unit, Ife south, two polling units, Orolu, three polling units and osogbo, one polling unit. He said a total of 3498 votes were cancelled in the seven affected polling units.

Meanwhile, Saraki also visited the SDP governorship candidate of the Osun election, Senator Iyiola Omisore, saying he had a warm reception and both parties have agreed to work together.

Saraki said, “I thank Sen. Iyiola Omisore for the warm reception he and his people gave me and members of my entourage in Ile Ife today.

“We have agreed to work together because our goals are the same. We all want good governance in Osun State. Over the next 24 hours, we will work out the details.

“Our discussion will definitely be useful for the growth of democracy in our country; the development of Osun State and its people; as well as for future engagements among political players.

“From now on, it will be a win-win situation for the State of the Land of Virtue, Osun, and Nigeria, in general.”
