The immediate past Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Prof. Olusola Eleka, has commended the voting process in the ongoing governorship election in the state.
Eleka, who cast his vote at Ward 2, Unit 7, Okeruku, Ikere Ekiti, in Ikere Local Government Area of the state, said there was no hitch and the process was ongoing without any form of harassment in any part of the town.
Speaking with our correspondent after casting his vote, the former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to allow the wish of the people to prevail in the election.
He also asked the security agents to ensure law and order was not broken.
Eleka said, “For me, the whole process is very fair, is transparent and it is orderly. The people are conducting themselves orderly, there is no rush, and everything is peaceful.
“I think there was a place where they complained of rubber stamps and the people insisted that stamps must be provided before they will continue with the process.
“Usually, you will expect the people to wait behind to defend their votes. Even if you don’t tell them to wait, they will want to wait so that the votes are counted correctly.
“In my ward alone, we have seven security personnel, apart from the other security personnel that are patrolling. I think that that is a wise and good arrangement.
On the chance of his party in the election, Eleka said, “I have done my part, I’ve voted for my party, we are waiting for the outcome and we wish the wish of the people prevail. We want to appeal to the INEC and other stakeholders to allow the process to be free and fair throughout.”
