The candidate of the All Progressive Congress and incumbent Governor of Ogun State, Mr Dapo Abiodun, has been reelected for a second term of four years.
His win was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission after he beat other candidates contesting for the seat.
However sequel to the announcement of Abiodun as the winner of the poll, PDP collation agent, Mr Sunkanmi Oyejide, cautioned the Returning Officer declaring him the winner for the election.
Oyejide urged INEC to consider a clause in the Electoral Act (amended) that mandates the commission to declare a rerun in the case of where the number of rejected votes is greater than other votes cast.
Oyejide stated that there were no fewer than 33,750 voters in Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode, Ikenne, Ijebu-North and Ogunwaterside asking the commission to look into it.
“The electoral act 2022, Section 24 Sub-Section three says where an election has commenced and there is reason to believe that there is or has been substantial destruction of election in a polling unit or constituency or it is impossible to continue with the election, occasioned by the threat to peace and security of electoral officials and materials.
“Electoral officials and materials should be underlined in the case of Remo where BVAS did not function and I argued it out. The commission shall suspend the election and appoint another date for the continuation of the election or the process.
“Secondly, if we invoke the principle of lead of margin enshrine in the electoral act 2022, the rejected votes according to results submitted to local government by local government are far higher than the lead of margin.
“This just to inform you when you are through with your final collation and what happened is found to be true that you will know that the election shall be inconclusive and a rerun should be ordered where necessary.”
