The Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC), has called on the people of the State to disregard the rumored news of a court injunction stopping all processes leading to the conduct of LG election in the state come January 27, 2018.
According to a statement issued by the Commission and signed by its Chairman, Otunba Segun Oladitan, the news is fake, illogical in reasoning, hogwash and incapable of standing the test of time.
Advancing reasons for his position, Otunba Segun Oladitan wondered how such an injunction would be granted without the other party having a say in the matter.
According to him, the State of Osun Independent Electoral Commission is not aware of any court process involving it in an Abuja Federal High Court and as such cannot be stopped through a funny means by the same court from performing its constitutional duties.
In addition, Otunba Segun Oladitan queries the locus of the Federal High Court based in Abuja to meddle in a matter affecting the conduct of LG Election in the state of Osun by the State Independent Electoral Commission.
Describing the news as a figment of the imagination of its proponents, Otunba Oladitan assured all well meaning people of the State that his Commission is very focused and working round the clock to deliver the most credible and acceptable LG election in the state of Osun come January 27, 2018.
