The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the results of the Saturday’s House of Assembly election across the twenty six state constituencies in Ekiti state.
In a statement by the Ekiti State INEC, Head of Voters Education and Publicity, Mr Temitope Akanmu said APC won twenty three out of the twenty six seats in the Assembly.
He equally announced that the Social Democratic Party (SDP) got two seats, while the remaining seat was declared inconclusive.
He explained that the election in Ido-Osi constituency 1 could not produce a clear winner due to the principle of lead margin which was applied after violent disruption of voting in some polling units.
” This is due to the fact that the margin of lead principle indicated a need for supplementary elections to be held in three Polling Units before a clear winner could emerge. This was born out of violent disruption of the voting process in three polling units of PU 003, PU 012 and PU 014 all in Registration Area (Ward) 01,” he said.
He added that a supplementary poll would be conducted in the affected polling units at a later date to be decided by the commission.
While describing the electoral process as generally peaceful, the statement noted that the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof. Ayobami Salami commended stakeholders especially traditional rulers for the successful conduct of the poll in the state.
