Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the governorship election in Osun State has told the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare him winner of Osun election now.
Adeleke accused INEC of working with security agents to announce the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Gboyega Oyetola winner.
Adeleke, who spoke with reporters in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, cited irregularities, malpractices and constitutional breaches in the ongoing re-run.
According to the senator, some PDP members were not allowed to vote in some polling units as they were chased away by security operatives and hoodlums.
“This is not a free and fair election. Osun state is under siege; we are at war in Osun. They didn’t allow my party to vote.
“It’s only APC people they allowed to vote. INEC and security agents have compromised. So, there is no election in Osun today.
“I urge INEC to cancel the election with immediate effect and declare me the winner because I’ve already won the election.”
The candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC Gboyega Oyetola was declared winner of the Osun election re-run on Thursday.
