Osun election: INEC fails to upload result in Adeleke’s polling unit

OFFICIALS of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the ongoing Osun State governorship election failed to upload election results at Polling Unit (PU) 009, Sagba/Abogunde Ward 2, Ede North Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, The ICIR can confirm. 
As of 3:55 pm when Form EC 60 (E) was posted at the polling unit, voters charged the officials to upload the election result on the spot before leaving the location.
Adeleke was earlier announced winner of the election at his polling unit after clinching 218 votes.


Already, the INEC officials had packed all the election materials into a white Mazda bus with the Osun State plate registration number EJB 384 XA, ready to move.
But the people protested, insisting the results should be uploaded before their departure.
Some of the party agents, especially from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), eventually offered to buy data for Internet to upload results but the officials rejected the offer.
They claimed the upload would be done at the collation centre.
By 4:11 pm, the vehicle finally drove off from the polling unit.
