In his welcome address, Oyo State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Adeniran Tella while appreciating relevant stakeholders for their support before, during and after the general elections, appealed to the elected leaders to use their renewed mandate to reawaken the confidence of the electorates on their voting exercise.

Dr Tella said the use of technology for the 2023 polls added value to the improved electoral process, calling for the support of the political class to help the commission conduct better exercises in coming elections.

Also speaking, INEC National Commissioner for Oyo, Lagos, and Ekiti states, Sam Olumekun hinted that the preparation for this year’s election commenced immediately after the 2019 polls which he said contributed to the success of the elections.

Reacting shortly after receiving his certificate of return, the newly re-elected governor of Oyo state, Engineer Seyi Makinde dedicated the election victory to the people of the state.

Governor Makinde said it was time to hit the ground running to redouble the efforts that take Oyo state from poverty to prosperity.
