Chief olumide Aderinokun a philanthropist and Egba born has called on the Ogun State government to follow the rules and regulations guiding the local government election so as to have a free and fair election in the state.
He made this call on Friday April 2021 in a press release made by his media assistant, Mr Taye Taiwo and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta.
He also added, “The people of Ogun State do not just expect free and fair local government election, they deserve free and fair election.
“For the election to be credible, Gov. Dapo Abiodun and OGSIEC must ensure legal votes are counted. The will of the electorate must not be subverted.
“Local Government administration has suffered greatly in Ogun State. The politicians have hijacked the process of electing councillors and chairmen. They have turned the process to “selection and not election.” It is now a matter of “who you know.”
“Those at the helms of affairs in OGSIEC must be upright and allow level playing ground. Fairness should be the name of the game, ” the statement reads.
Mr. Babatunde Osibodu-led OGSIEC on Friday had released time table for the local government election.
The election will hold on Saturday 24th of July, 2021.
