APC Lawmaker Reacts To Osun Election

Abdulmumin Jibrin of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is a member of House of Representatives, has said the ruling party would have lost the Osun governorship elections outright if Iyiola Omisore didn’t decamp to the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

Jibrin also admitted the way the election went should be a wake-up call for the APC.

Naija News reports that Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 254,699 ahead of Isiaka Oyetola of the APC who had 254,345 votes.

Recall that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has also declared the election inconclusive as the number of cancelled votes: 3,498, exceeded the difference between the two leading parties which is 353.

INEC has fixed Thursday for a rerun in the areas where the votes were cancelled.

In a tweet on Sunday, Jibrin said he is humbled by the outcome of the election while others supported him to note that APC needed to restrategize in its politics.

The lawmaker also agreed that the election was free and fair as he reposted a tweet by the Personal Assistant to the President On New Media, Bashir Ahmad.
