Most parts of Osun state were awake and alive on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.

The sobre atmosphere that is characteristic of Orolu, Osogbo and Ife has been evaporated by politicians pouring in from Abuja seeking to earn a mandate.

Senator Iyiola Omisore transformed into a beautiful bride and the contest to woo him was fierce between the APC and PDP.

APC paid the price he wanted and a new relationship expected to blossom but that's if victory is earned.

Bounce News correspondent, Kehinde Akintoye visited parts of Orolu and Osogbo.

He reports that residents in both areas are worried that there might be a fierce battle lurking at the end of the polls.

Security operatives including the police and army have been deployed across the communities where the polls would be conducted.

Their presence looked intimidating even to those who have no intention of fomenting trouble. Some residents might just prefer to stay home as the polity seems to have been over heated.

About 5 trucks of military officers drove into Orolo at 7.43pm. They were obviously not there on a routine visit.

Our correspondent says the journey to Orolu from Osogbo is about 35 minutes by Okada and the bumpy ride would not be appropriate for a pregnant woman.

There would be much concern for the people in this area that appear to have been neglected by state authorities.

The roads are bad and you can tell these people are yet to feel the impact of government. On the way here is a narrow bridge at Ojutu, the boundary town between Okinni and Erin Osun.

The bridge cannot accommodate two cars.  A new one is being built but is yet to be completed.

Some aspect of the road is being repaired by federal authorities because it has been marked as a federal road.

However, in Erin-Osun/Ilobu, the people are calm. The town is peaceful but the sight of soldiers isn't pleasant.

There is a sense of uncertainty as people wonder what would happen if the opposition PDP wins.
