On Saturday, Oyo State Gov. Seyi Makinde expressed satisfaction with the current election process and urged voters to be patient with those in charge.
Makinde, who cast her vote at precisely 10.10 a.m. at unit 1, ward 21, Abayomi-Iwo Road in the Ibadan North-East Local Government Area, urged voters to act responsibly in fulfilling their civic responsibilities.
In a similar vein, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, the wife of an earlier governor of Oyo State, said that the elections were very peaceful and that she was impressed with the process.
Given that we are experiencing issues with the BVAS machine, I am impressed that people have turned out and shown patience.
Ajimobi stated, “I want to commend the good people in this polling unit for being very patient.”
Despite this, she admitted that it was difficult for her to vote because it was the first time since her husband’s death.
It makes me feel a little emotional, but God is undeniable. She stated, “There is nothing else I can do. I am here to vote.”
Prof. Taoheed Adedoja, a former Minister of Sports, praised the turnout of voters and praised the election process as a whole.
After casting his vote in Popoyemoja ward 4 of the Ibadan South-West Local Government Area, Adedoja told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that voters were pleased with the performance of the BVAS and that its use was excellent.
He stated, “I thank God that everything went peacefully, as people came out as early as 7.00 a.m. and officials of INEC also came out in good time at ward 4 of Ibadan South-West Local Government at Popoyemoja to conduct the election.” The election was held in ward 4 of the Ibadan South-West Local Government.
In addition, Chief Rotimi Ajanaku, the Accord House of Representatives candidate for the Ibadan South-West/North-West Federal Constituency, cast his ballot at precisely 11 a.m. in ward 12, unit 32 of the Ibadan South-West Local Government.
Ajanaku said that the elections were the most impressive and peaceful ones ever.
Despite the electorate’s already-instilled fear of possible crises and violence, he expressed satisfaction that the election was proceeding peacefully.
“This election was peaceful, and I believe INEC did well,” In Nigeria, there will never be any violence; We will never split up; We will always be a single, unbreakable nation.
“The electorate’s decision will be made public, and their will will prevail.” This indicates that the people chose their candidates to represent them,” he stated.
In Ibarapaland, a police officer who preferred to remain anonymous stated that, given the already-existing tension caused by the cashless policy, prohibiting individuals from engaging in their normal daily activities could pose a significant challenge. But I was mistaken,” he stated.
