Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Segun Sowunmi, vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and a former aide for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, respectively, have praised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) regarding the election process in the State of Ogun.
Osinbajo had cast his vote at Polling Unit 14, Egunrege Ward 1, Ikenne in Ikenne L.G.A, Ogun State. He afterwards spoke of the governorship and state assembly elections as peaceful and cordial.
According to the vice president, the electorates had been able to cast their votes without violence or any issue at all.
It was gathered that Osinbanjo arrived the polling station around 10:31 with Dolapo, his wife, and voted around 10:36 am.

Likewise, Sowunmi said he was impressed with the process so far. He spoke about this after casting his vote at Polling Unit 4, Ward 6, Itoko, Abeokuta-South.
He said, “The accreditation has been pretty smooth and people have turned out as much as they can, so, what we are hoping for is that as the process was advertised and made known to us that things (results) would be transmitted to the INEC Result Viewing portal and to the portal in Abuja.
“The truth of the matter is that once election has been done at the polling unit, people have their expectation on how well the election is to be conducted; at least from what I can see, BVAS is working well, accreditation is on going, we have done our part, let those in charge of counting the votes and transmitting the result do their own part.”
