Oyo LG election outcome, not the people’s will, says Hon. Sadipe

The member representing Oluyole Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, has expressed disapproval over last Saturday’s Local Government elections held throughout Oyo State, saying the outcome was not the people’s choice.

Expressing her disappointment, Akande-Sadipe stated, “The farce of an Election is over. But congratulations to our Oluyole APC team. If the outcome had been different. I would have been surprised and impressed by the integrity of the human powers that be. But, alas it was not to be.”

She congratulated contestants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, saying they did well.

“To the contestants of APC all over Oyo State and most especially my Oluyole, well done and congratulations for your courage”, she said.

She added, “To all our contestants, Hon Orelope, his Vice Mrs Funmi Oladapo, our Councilorship candidates, God knows the true winners. You all put up a great campaign. Some will say it’s Politics. But I say, there is no reason to force a mandate on people, that is not what politics is meant to be. Politics is meant to be the people’s choice. The outcome of this farce was not the people’s choice”.

Speaking on the conduct organized by the Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission, OYSIEC, Hon. Akande-Sadipe expressed her disappointment.

“OYSIEC congratulations you have exercised your mandate, to conduct an election, but can you authoritatively say this was a free and fair election? To give to one what doesn’t belong to them, what belongs to another, is a travesty of justice”.
