All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senator-elect, Dr Idiat Adebule has delivered her Polling Unit 029, Iba in Ojo for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and House of Asembly candidate Segun Ege.
APC polled 115 votes leaving Labour Party (LP) candidate at a distant second with 57 votes and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) came third with seven votes.
The House of Assembly results showed that APC got 113 votes, Labour Party – 52 votes and PDP only garnered seven votes.
She thanked the electorate and party faithful for having trust in her.
According to her, there is a need for the electorate to participate more in the electoral system.
She, however, commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the early arrival of the ad-hoc officials.
Speaking at Polling Unit 029 Iba, where she and her husband, Alhaji Saheed Adebule cast their votes, the Senator-elect said the exercise is an improvement over the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly poll.
She said: “I must say it has been smooth so far. The electoral officials came early enough to commence the exercise.I say kudos to the commission.”
She faulted the allegation of thugs depriving people from exercising their civic rights.
“Election is going on smoothly in Iba Local Government Area, but I don’t know what is going on in other areas. You can see that things are orderly here and no intimidation or harassment,” she said.
She expressed optimism that her party, the APC will come out victorious.
“My expectation is that my party should come out victorious in the governor and assembly poll. Our governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu would win in because he has done quite a lot for the people of the state.
“We appreciate him for that and we want him to continue on that terrain and do more for the people of the state, especially in Iba area. We need more development and we look forward to him giving us the best in terms of infrastructure.”
