Omisore blames INEC for defeat, heads for tribunal
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has said that his loss at the Saturday election is due to the malpractices perpetrated by a former Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state.
Omisore, who said this in a statement on Monday, claimed that although the REC was replaced shortly before the election, he had done enough damage to ensure victory for Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress.
Aregbesola was declared the winner of the poll with a total votes of 394, 684 while Omisore came second with 292,747 votes.
