Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has expressed satisfaction with peaceful conduct of the local government election on Saturday, 27th April.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary and Special Adviser (Media), Mr Sulaimon Olanrewaju, also rated the conduct of the election high, stating it compared favourably with elections conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Addressing journalists after exercising his franchise at Polling Unit 1, Ward 11 in Ibadan North East Local Government, Governor Makinde said: “this is almost our 5th year in office and we are holding local government election for the second time”.

“Before we came in, it had always been caretaker administration at the grassroots without the people having a say in who should govern them”.

“You can see around also that the people are going about, performing the exercise peacefully and the traffic restriction is being obeyed by the people” he stated.

“So, I will commend our people for coming out to take seriously democracy at that level.”

The governor also noted that the security report about the election had been excellent, said those who observed any untoward development should report same to the security agencies.
