Chairman of Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC), Aare Isiaka Olagunju (SAN) has again allayed the fears of likely crises at the local government election going on today in Ido Local Government Area of the state.
He appealed to the people of the council area to go out enmass to vote for their choice candidate at the poll.
Aare Olagunju in an interview with journalists during his monitoring exercise at ward 4 Unit 7, Otitoloju Primary School, Oloro-Olomo, Apete Area in Ibadan assured the people of maximum security, adding that the poll has been free and fair since its commencement earlier in the day.
It would be recalled that the Ido Local Government election was rescheduled to today, Wednesday, due to the omission of Zenith Labour Party logo on the ballot paper during the Saturday, May 22 council election in the state.
The OYSIEC boss said though, there was report that some people were planning to foment trouble at polling booths in some parts of the council area but nothing of such has happened since embarking on the monitoring exercise.
