In a press statement, the commission’s chief returning officer in the state, Joseph Adeola Fuwape, revealed that the election was declared inconclusive because of the slim margin by which the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke, topped the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s candidate.
