Ademola Adeleke has cast his vote at his ward in Agbogunde/Sagba at Ede North Local Government Area, which is Ward 2 unit 9 a few hours ago.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Ademola Adeleke was spotted in white attire with his signature Yoruba traditional hat which the Senator has come to be known with alongside his supporters as he cast his vote.
The election so far has been adjudged to be peaceful as voters in all the Local Government Areas have all turned out in large numbers to exercise their civic responsibility, as the ruling party of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and PDP fight it out as to who wins the Governorship elections in Osun State.
The Election which is clearly a two horse race has seen electoral observers trooping into the State to see first hand how the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) handles this particular election, that is expected to be the last before the general elections early next year 2019. It is also expected to curb the issue of vote buying and selling, a thing that is fast becoming a norm during elections in Nigeria.
INEC reported that Osun state had over 1.6million registered voters, with 1 million PVCs collected, the election will surely be a huge and difficult task for INEC and security agencies.
There has been some incident of vote buying recorded in some places as INEC have released numbers people and party agents can call for immediate response:
