The Chairman, Osun Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC), Mr Segun Oladitan, has attributed the low turnout at some polling units at the Local Government election to misinformation by the oppositions.
Whiile speaking with newsmen at the OSIEC Secretariat in Osogbo, Oladitan said he was surprised at the reports of low turnout in some polling units.
He blamed the low turnout to misinformation being spread by those opposing the election in the state.
He described the oppositions as “mischief makers’’, saying they had been going around to tell the people that election would not hold.
Oladitan said the commission did a lot of sensitisation about the election, which resulted in large turnout of voters in some areas of the state.
Asked about the late arrival of election materials in some units, Oladitan said logistics and human factors were responsible for that.
