EU, UK, US commend Osun election

By Vera Sam Anyagafu
The Missions of the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States have expressed satisfaction on the September 22 election in Osun State, saying they will not relent in efforts to ensure a peaceful,  free, fair  and credible completion of the process, as INEC re-runs the election.

Voters on the queue in Osogbo on Thursday: Despite the heavy rain, some refused to leave the queue
“We urge that all continue to support a peaceful, free, fair, and credible completion of the process as INEC re-runs the election in seven polling units where , through no fault of their own , voters were not able to cast their votes and have them counted last Saturday.
We stress the importance that the re-run should take place without any violence, intimidation, or vote buying”, they emphasised,  adding that, “Whoever wins the election after Thursday’s vote should be magnanimous in victory, and whoever loses should be gracious in defeat”.
They also commended people of Osun for exercising a peaceful voting and the Independent National Electoral Commission for the improved organisation of the election, and security services for their conduct.
