Candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have won all the chairmanship position in all the 33 Local Government Areas in Saturday’s council election in Oyo State.

The result of the local government elections was announced by the Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) amidst controversy of irregularities during the voting process.

The results were announced at the Conference Hall of the Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission, Agodi, Ibadan.

After the presentation of the results from all the 33 local government areas where elections took place, the OYSIEC Chairman, Mr Isiaka Olagunju, affirmed the results and declared PDP victorious.

There are, however, complaints from some local government areas about discrepancies noticed during the electoral process ranging from lateness of materials and personnel to non availability of necessary material in some.

There are allegations that election did not take place in some wards from Ibadan North, Ibadan South West, some parts of Saki in the Oke Ogun axis of the state among others..


While thanking all electoral officers, party agents and security agents who participated in the process, Olagunju acknowledged the fact that there are areas of improvement to be worked on, noting that detailed report of the election would be presented to the state government as soon as it is ready.

Meanwhile, the African Action Congress (AAC) has registered its displeasure with the conduct of the local government elections and called for its cancellation.

At a press conference at the party office in Ibadan, the National Publicity Secretary of AAC, Fẹmi Adeyeye, alleged that Oyo State government did not conduct a credible election.

He called on security agents to release its State Chairman and another member who was arrested during the election period.
