The gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has declared that the gubernatorial election in the state was characterised by irregularities and marred by intimidation, manipulation and vote buying.
Oguntoyinbo made the submission immediately after casting his vote at his polling unit 027 Adebimpe, Ofada Ward, Ogun State.
The NNPP guber candidate also specifically alleged one lady, Kemi Ayodeji as the APC agent who was in charge of the vote buying for the ruling APC, saying there were obvious evidences of irregularities in the conduct of the elections.
He disclosed that voters were not provided the right kind of atmosphere to freely express their franchise.
For a start, Oguntoyinbo said the NNPP was placed at a disadvantaged position by virtue of its logo being omitted on the ballot paper.
He added that there was no provision for security personal to re- assure voters of safety, as a result the exercise was marred by intimidation and harassment of voters by agents whom he alleged were hired by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oguntoyinbo called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the election as a result of the aforementioned irregularities.
Sharing her opinion, a voter, Taofekat Adedoyin, said, “Also at Temidire my polling boot, the NNPP was not written out on the ballot paper, and the logo was not that clear.
“Those are things we had complained about before now, urging INEC to rectify. Nevertheless, I waited patiently before casting my vote”.
