LG polls: Stop mixing fantasy with democracy, Oyo government tells opposition 

The Oyo state government has charged the opposition political parties in the state to “stop mixing fantasy with democracy.”

The government gave the charge in a statement by the state Commissioner for Information, Prince Dotun Oyelade, after the release of the local government elections in the state on Sunday 

According to Prince Oyelade, surprisingly, the opposition party started rehearsing their complaints barely 30 minutes to the commencement of the elections.

The commissioner stressed that the victory of all PDP candidates in the local government elections was predictable considering the outstanding performance of Governor Seyi Makinde in the last five years. 

Emphasising the outstanding performance of Makinde administration in the last five years was the major reason the election turned out to be in the favour of PDP, the commissioner also attributed the election result to the quality of the candidates which the ruling party presented.

“This is a glowing tribute to the governor and his government as this is the last election under his watch till 2027 when he and the just elected LG chairmen and councillors will end their tenures”, he said.

The commissioner then lauded the commitments of the security team, the OYSIEC chairman and his team for daring to make a difference after the challenges of the past two local government elections.
