Tobi Adebayo 

The Regent of Ibulesoro land in Ondo State, Moyinoluwa Falowo has accused the state Independent Electoral Commission (ODEIC) of denying residents of her community the right to elect their Local Government Chairman and Ward Councillor.

She made the accusation via her Facebook page on Saturday evening and expressed doubts about the integrity of forthcoming governorship election in the state.

Falowo wrote: “This is to Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission (ODIEC).

“There was no Local Government and Councillorship election in Ibulesoro today. My people were disenfranchised and did not exercise their civic right to elect our local government chairman and ward councillor.

“Your officials came to Ibulesoro to conduct election with ridiculous percentage of the required number of ballot papers. Residents resisted the conduct of the election on the grounds of incomplete ballot papers.

“ODIEC, did you come to mark register in our community? How could you not dignify us with adequate election materials so we can vote? Are you going to be declaring the election in our ward conclusive? Or you’ll reschedule for us?

“Looking at the show of shame that happened across Ondo state today, what will now happen during the Guber elections with INEC?

“I’m afraid!.”
