Joe Odumakin who also spoke to Bounce News described the elections as commendable but not perfect.

Meanwhile following the announcement of results from all the 30 local government areas of Osun state, PDP collation officer, Dele Adeleke has raised an issue with the results from the Olorunda LGA.

According to Adeleke, an additional 2,000 votes were added to APC's votes. The state's collation officer has therefore ordered a recount.
