All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senator-elect, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for early arrival of its ad-hoc officials at various polling units in her area.
Speaking at Polling Unit 029 Iba, where she and her husband, Alhaji Saheed Adebule cast their votes, the Senator-elect said the exercise was an improvement on the Saturday, 25 February, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly polls.
She said: “I must say it has been smooth so far. The electoral officials came early enough to commence the exercise. I say kudos to the commission.”
She faulted the allegation of thugs depriving people from exercising their civic rights.
“Election is going on smoothly in Iba Local Government Area, but I don’t know what is going on in other areas. You can see that things are orderly here and no intimidation or harassment,” she said.
She expressed optimism that her party, the APC will come out victorious.
“My expectation is that my party should come out victorious in the governor and assembly poll. Our governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu would win in because he has done quite a lot for the people of the state. We appreciate him for that and we want him to continue on that terrain and do more for the people of the state, especially in Iba area. We need more development and we look forward to him giving us the best in terms of infrastructure,” she said.
