It therefore fixed Saturday, 27th April 2019 for the conduct of the supplementary election.

 

The declaration was made at the Federal Constituency Collation Centre, Ajeromi/Ifelodun Local Government Area Office of the Commission in Lagos during a meeting with leaders of Political Parties, candidates and their agents.

 

The declaration was in compliance with the order of the Federal High Court sitting in Kubwa, Abuja on March 7, 2019 compelling INEC to declare the results.

 

Spokesman of INEC, Mr. Femi Akinbiyi said at the end of the meeting that the election became inconclusive in view of the margin of lead principle where no candidate emerged clear winner as a result of cancelation of election in 71 polling units.

 

Daily Trust reports that the cancellations were as a result of violence and over voting in the affected areas.
