Different reactions have popped up in the ongoing Governorship primary election of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Osun state.

This battle for the sole ticket of the party is between the Government of Osun state, Gboyega Oyetola and a former secretary to the State Government, Moshood Abiola.

Oyetola’s men expressed satisfaction with the ongoing process while supporters of Adeoti grumbled over alleged missing names from the party’s register.

It was gathered that the voting has commenced in over 300 wards in the state with Oyetola leading from unconfirmed reports shared on social media so far.

Basiru, a strong supporter of Oyetola said, “This is the third ward I have been, aside doing accreditation in my own ward. I have been to Ward 10 and now in Ward 9 and we have seen people ready and willing to vote. The party members have taken over the control and determine who will be their candidate. I only appeal to those that would lose to accept in the spirit of democracy, unity, cohesion, and development of our party to accept that in good faith and ensure that we join hands together to ensure the success of our party in the forthcoming July election.”

It was also seen that there’s a large turnout in Osogbo and Olorunda local Government Areas. Ganiyu Isola who voted at Orolu Local Government ward 03 said the process was free, fair and credible.

At Ejigbo, former Osun speaker Najeem Saleem complained that INEC officials refused to show up at ward 4 collation centre which is the constitutionally recognised venue for the primary election.

Bola oyebamiji, the Osun Commissioner for Finance described the large turnout as an appreciation of good governance.
