The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared 23 All Progressives Congress House of Assembly candidates in Ekiti State as winners of Saturday’s election into the state legislature in their respective constituencies.
The electoral umpire also declared two Social Democratic Party candidates winners while the remaining state constituency was declared inconclusive.
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Ekiti State, Prof Ayobami Salami, said, “The election at Ido/Osi State Constituency 1 is inconclusive. This is due to the fact that the margin of lead principle indicated a need for supplementary elections to be held in three polling units before a clear winner could emerge.”
Salami, in a statement by Head of Voter Education and Publicity, INEC, Ekiti State, Temitope Akanmu, said there was violent disruption of the voting process in three polling units – PU 003, PU 012 and PU 014 all in Registration Area (Ward) 01 of Ido/OsI State Constituency 1.
