#OsunDecides: PWDs, Pregnant Women, Others Prioritized

At Ward 3, Unit 7, Isale Osun in Osogbo, Persons With Disabilities (PWD), aged and pregnant women were given the right to vote before others.

At the Osun state governorship poll, two separate queues were formed with PWDS, the aged and pregnant women staying in a line, while other voters were in the second queue.

Speaking after casting his vote, Adio Olatunde, a PWD, expressed gratitude to INEC for giving PWDs and other categories of vulnerable people the opportunity to vote before others.

He said, “I came from Owode-Ede this morning. I thank INEC for giving people like me the opportunity to vote before others. Pregnant women and the aged are also in separate queues. BIVAS didn’t accept my thumb but it accepted my photograph and I was allowed to vote.”
