The Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC) has announced that all 389 candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) won Saturday’s councillor-ship election.
Releasing the official results to reporters yesterday in Osogbo, the capital, OSIEC Chairman Segun Oladitan said 318 of the candidates were returned unopposed.
Oladitan said 128 of the returned candidates were from Osun Central Senatorial District, while 117 were from Osun West, with the remaining 73 from Osun East Senatorial District.
He said the remaining 71 candidates, who added up the figures, were voted for at the poll.
The OSIEC chairman said 52 of the voted candidates came from Osun East, 13 from the West while six came from Osun Central Senatorial District.
The OSIEC Chairman consequently issued certificates of return to all councillors.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that OSIEC, last Wednesday, announced that 318 candidates of the APC were contesting unopposed, leaving only 71 wards to be contested for.
OSIEC also stated that elected councillors will be running a parliamentary administrative system at the local government tier, with the councillors to elect the chairmen among themselves.
