Former Deputy Ekiti Governor Prof Olusola Eleka, on Saturday said he will regard whatever outcome the ongoing Ekiti Sate governorship race throws up as the will of people.
“I have done my part, I’ve voted for my party, whatever the outcome is the wish of the people.” Olusola Eleka
Eleka, who made the remark after he voted at Unit 7, Ward 2 Okeruku, Ikere Ekiti, described the ongoing governorship election as fair, transparent and orderly.
Eleka praised the electorate for conducting themselves in an orderly manner.
On whether the People Democratic Party (PDP) would win the election, Eleka said he has voted for his party but the outcome would be the wish of the people.
He said: “I have done my part, I’ve voted for my party, whatever the outcome is the wish of the people.
“I think there was a place where they complained of rubber stamp and the people insisted that stamp must be provided before they will continue with the process.
“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.
“The process itself is quite fair and I think it will make the process count. 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.”
