The gubernatorial candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke, has explained why he jumped the queue at his polling units to cast his ballot in the ongoing Osun State governorship election.
Adeleke had cast his vote at Unit 009, Ward 02, Abogunde/Sagba, Ede North earlier today.
Answering questions from journalists who wanted to know why he jumped the queue to vote ahead of those he met at the polling unit, the PDP candidate said he was invited by the people to step forward and cast his vote.
“It was the people that invited me to come forward and cast my ballot. They asked me to step forward and go the front.”
Asked if that is how he will continue without “regard for the common man” when he gets to the office, he said, “You can see me; I love my people. And that will not stop when elected,” he said.
He also described the election process and the Independent National Electoral Commission’s preparedness for the poll, as “fantastic”.
He said with the feelers he was getting across the state, calmness was the order of the day and he expects the situation to remain the same till the end of the electoral process.
