ACN governorship candidate in Saturday’s election in Ondo State, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has expressed satisfaction with the large turnout of voters in his Unit 6 Oke-Ijebu, Owo, Polling Unit.
He said that though he was not allowed to visit any other area, information available to him indicated that residents equally turned out in large numbers in other areas of Owo.
“Although, late arrival of INEC materials had brought an initial set-back to the accreditation of voters, we have reached out to the officials concerned and we believe they will profer solution to the problem,” Akeredolu said.
He, however, commended INEC’s efforts, saying “they have prepared enough to discharge their responsibility.”
Chief Olu Ogidan, the state’s Chairman of the Labour Party, also commended the Federal Government for providing a level playing ground for all parties participating in the election.
According to him, the security arrangement has adequately nipped in the bud any attempt to cause violence in the state. Also speaking, Mr Ebenezer Alabi, the state’s Chairman of the PDP, commended the security arrangement put in place for the poll.
Alabi, who also commended INEC for "its tidy arrangement,” said he was happy about the conduct of the voters during the accreditation process.
The Olukare of Ikareland, Oba Akadiri Momoh, in his reaction, described the accreditation process as peaceful and orderly. He urged the voters to accept the election result whenever it was announced.
