But the INEC’s Returning Officer, Salihu James, declared the result inconclusive, following the cancellation of some votes due to disruption of voting in some polling units in Okene and Adavi.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Halilu Pai, said on Monday that the earlier declaration of the election as inconclusive was a human error and directed that candidate of the PDP be declared winner of the election.
