General Elections: Osun residents go out to vote

The presidential and National Assembly elections in Osun started on a peaceful note as voters turned out in droves to perform their civic duty.

This comes despite a dearth of funds and pre-election violence that has bedeviled parts of the state, especially the federal constituencies of Ijessa North and Ijesa South.

It was reported that many lives were lost and property was destroyed when supporters of the two major political parties, the People’s Democratic Party, the Democratic Progressive Party, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, clashed.

The Daily Post reports that in most of the polling units visited, voters were observed checking their names on the voter list.

DAILY POST has also reliably gathered that voting started at 8:30 am at PUs in Osogbo.

Agboke, the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, the resident electoral commissioner of Osun, said in a radio program on Friday that voting in all constituencies will begin at 8:30 am and end at 2:30 pm.

Agboke also warned that anyone who did not possess a permanent voter card would not only be disenfranchised, but prosecuted.

It has also been observed that residents comply with police restrictions on movement.

Security personnel were also on standby to prevent any unforeseen circumstances.
