The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the rerun of the Osun state governorship election which it earlier declared “inconclusive” will now hold on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

Fuwape, who’s also the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), had earlier declared the governorship election in Osun state “inconclusive” after a thin margin between scores for two main contenders.

APC scored 254,345 votes, behind PDP’s 254,698 votes—a margin of 353 votes.
