There was a little drama on Monday as the Collation Officer for Ondo state, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, struggled to match correctly tabulated figures with the political parties.

The renowned Professor of International Relations on many occasions mixed up scores for political parties, prompting the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to ask him to go back.

Yakubu was forced to ask Soremekun to go back and reconcile the results.
