Baring any unforeseen circumstance, there might be a rerun in the just concluded governorship election in Osun State.

From the results announced so far by INEC, the two main contenders, Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party and Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are running neck-at-neck.

The results obtained by our reporter so far showed that the PDP candidate is leading with just 910 vote margin.

Meanwhile, the electoral umpire is yet to announce the final result.

More to come….
