Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Saturday’s Osun State election, Ademola Adeleke, said he jumped the queue at his polling units to cast his ballot.
Adeleke cast his vote at Unit 009, Ward 02, Abogunde/Sagba, Ede North in Osun.
Fielding questions from journalists on why he jumped the queue to vote ahead of those he met at the polling unit, the former lawmaker said that happened because the people loved him.
“It was the people that invited me to come forward and cast my ballot. They asked me to step forward and go the front,” he said.
Asked if that is how he will continue without “regard for the common man” when he gets to the office, he said, “You can see me; I love my people. And that will not stop when elected,” he said.
On the election process and the Independent National Electoral Commission’s preparedness for the poll, he said the process was “fantastic”.
He said with the feelers he was getting across the state, calmness was the order of the day and he expects the situation to remain the same till the end of the electoral process.
