The People Democratic Party PDP has moved to form an alliance with Senator Iyiola Omisore of Social Democratic Party SPD and other political parties in Osun State to enable them to win the Osun rerun.
The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC could not declare the candidate of the People Democratic Party Ademola Adeleke the winner of Osun Governorship election because of some cancellation in some polling units.
The commission, therefore, declared the election inconclusive and ordered rerun in all the affected polling units. The polling units which were listed by the commission, are two in Orolu Local Government Area, one in Ife South Local Government Area, one in Ife North Local Government Area and one in Osogbo Local Government Area.
Although the PDP is leading the margin could not earn them being declared as the winner. The People Democratic Party scores a total of 254,698 which is closely followed by the All Progressive Congress with the total vote of 254,345. The margin is just 353.
In a bid to come out victorious in the rerun slated on Thursday, PDP has moved to form an alliance with Omisore. The party had already initiated discussions with Omisore towards winning the two units in his stronghold of Ife.
Apart from Omisore, the PDP was said to be planning to meet with candidates of other political parties that had what a source described as a “worthy outing” during the election on Saturday.
Such candidates, it was gathered, are African Democratic Congress’ Fatai Akinbade and Action Democratic Party’s Alhaji Moshood Adeoti.
