“Once you are able to tell the election officer your number from the notice board, it becomes easier to cast your vote. That’s how I did it,” he said.

The Speaker further urged the people to remain calm and believe in the process.

“This is the critical period for the people of Osun to elect their leaders, those who are not out yet should come out and cast their votes.”
