OGHA election: Over-voting not in my unit/ward - Ogun speaker
The Speaker, Ogun state House of Assembly, Rt Hon (Prince) Olakunle Oluomo says the results of his polling unit was not the one cancelled as rumored in some sections of the media; rather, it was the result of unit 04 of Ifo ward 01 where his opponent belongs that was cancelled due to over-voting.
A statement released by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, AbdulGhaffar Adeleye today in Abeokuta, clarified that "the Speaker voted at unit 19, ward three, while the election was cancelled at unit four, ward one. The unit is one of the three units at the voting centre of the Ogun State Chairman of the people's democratic party, PDP, Hon Sikirulai Ogundele.
The statement reads further " The speaker recorded massive votes from his constituents and he is already leading with a total of 969 votes across the Constituency"
"Mr Speaker is comfortably leading and is not in anyway perturbed by the inconclusiveness of the election"
"He played his usual role in church yesterday and is in office this morning", Adeleye stated.
Rt Hon Oluomo urged his followers and well-wishers to be calm and continue to be prayerful, for it is a temporary setback to the eventual victory.
