Ademola Adeleke, a candidate for governor for the Peoples Democratic Party, has explained why he voted on Saturday by skipping the line at his voting places.
The PDP candidate voted in Osun state’s Abogunde/Sagba, Ward 02, Unit 009, Ede North.
“It was the people that invited me to come forward and cast my ballot. They asked me to step forward and go the front.”
When asked by media why he voted before those he met at the polling place, the former congressman responded that it was because the people adored him.
Asked if that is how he will continue without “regard for the common man” when he gets to the office, he said, “You can see me; I love my people. And that will not stop when elected,” he said.
He described the election process as “excellent” and praised the Independent National Electoral Commission’s preparation for the vote.
According to the indications he was receiving from around the state, calmness was the norm of the day, and he anticipated that this would continue until the election was over.
He expressed hope that the rumors about political opponents buying votes would stay rumors because the process was only getting started.
“We want this election to be a point of contact for 2023. The whole world is watching us and this is going to be a test for us all. So, let Osun people decide who they want,” he said.
