The governor of Osun, Gboyega Oyetola, has declared his high hopes of getting reelected.
Shortly after casting his vote on Saturday, Oyetola told reporters that the electorates are “cautious” and understands the importance of participating in the voting process.
According to the governor, it won’t be necessary to urge people to cast ballots once the process is clear.
“The election is going smoothly. It is important to deplore the machine so as to ensure that the voting process can be completed within the time frame,” he said.

“I have seen the presence of the security. I think they are doing well. I see the enthusiasm the voters are displaying and I am particularly grateful to them.
“I believe people are conscious of the need to participate in the process. Once the process is transparent enough, people will not be persuaded to vote. There won’t be voter apathy. It is indeed very impressive.
“By the grace of the Almighty God, I am confident I will be reelected.”
