Osun Assembly Election: PDP decries low turn out of voters

Mr Soji Adagunodo, the Osun Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has decried the low turnout in Saturday’s House of Assembly election in the state.

Adagunodo , who spoke with newsmen in his home town in Ilowa, Obokun Local Government Area of the state, said the voters’ apathy might due to the fact that there was no governorship election in the state.

He said that the turnout of voters was not impressive when compared to the massive turn out during the Presidential and National Assembly elections two weeks ago.

“But all the same, the turnout of voters is still reasonable,’’Adagunodo said.

The PDP chairman, however, commended the electorate for their peaceful conduct.

Adagunodo said notwithstanding the low turnout of voters, the party would win majority seats in the assembly.
