The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party. PDP, are on Friday, October 5, 2018, protesting against the outcome of the recently concluded Osun State Governorship election.
The PDP leaders including Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, are leading the protesters to the headquarter of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Abuja on Friday, October 5, 2018, to demand that the commission declare the PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke, as the winner of the election.
Although Adeleke was in the lead after the total votes were added as of Sunday, September 23, 2018, the election was declared inconclusive because the cancelled votes exceeded the vote difference between the two leading candidates.
A rerun was conducted thereafter and Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had eventually been declared winner of the election.
