Reactions Over Osun ‘Inconclusive Elections”
Naija News reported how Adeleke led with a total votes of 254, 698 while Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, polled a total of 254,345 to come second in the keenly contested election.
Recall also that the Independent Electoral Commission declared “inconclusive”, after which it slated a re-run to hold on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
In a series of Tweets some Nigerians opined that the turnout of the Osun elections is a sign of what is obtainable in the 2019 elections, noting that APC had to restrategize.
“Our party (APC) must go back to the drawing board, to see if it can get things right.
Osun governorship election result is a big lesson ahead of 2019 and we have to re-strategise.
For now, we are only begging Osun people to, please, vote for APC in the re-run.”

Even the devil is shocked at what INEC are doing with regards the Osun election results. Nigeria needs a rebrand and hard reset back to factory settings.

Those of you saying we are inciting against INEC’s wuruwuru in OSUN, when your party wins in 2019 after you must have spent time, energy and billions, and they gave you a fake result against your victory, just hug and pat them in the back…
