The low turnout of voters in Ogbomosho North was as a result of coalition of political parties in Oyo State, says the deputy governorship candidate of Alliance for Democracy (AD), Hon. Georgina Ajibi.
She made the disclosure while speaking to journalists after casting her vote at Unit19, Ward 10, Oke Elerin primary school in Ogbomoso.
Ajibi said people have decided to stay back at home because of the delusions caused by the merger of various political parties.
However, Senator Elect of Oyo North, Abdul-Fatai Buhari said the coalition of parties is not the determining factor of the low turnout of people
Buhari affirmed that Akala’s alignment with the All Progressive Congress is a good omen for the party.
According to him, “I pray and I hope my party’s candidate wins the election today. The turnout is a bit low, compared to what we had two weeks ago.
“We have a Candidate here who decided to support APC. Whether you like it or not, he has a sizeable number of supporters, and it is good for us. I can assure you, in my senatorial, Oke-Ogun, we are going to be victorious.
“Oyo north is a determinant of the election, it had always been the determiner of election since 1999.
Any vote that comes from Oyo North determines the election, because Oyo South and Oyo Central will be shared among Ibadan people.
Similarly, Adebayo Alao-Akala expressed optimism that the APC candidate, Adebayo Adelabu will emerge as the elected governor.
He said that people who have are yet to come out to vote will eventually show up before the end of the voting exercise.
