The Women Arise for Change Initiative, an election monitoring group has commended the large turnout of voters for Osun governorship election on Saturday.
President of the group, Dr Joe Okei-Odumakin, who gave the commendation while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ile-Ife, said the turnout of voters was impressive.
Okei-Odumakin lauded the readiness of the electorate to cast their votes, adding that the group deployed more than 100 observers for the election.
The rights activist commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the timely arrival of voting materials across the polling units.
Okei-Odumakin also commended the security agents for displaying high sense of professionalism in discharging their duties.

She also commended politicians for displaying high sense of good conduct so far in the election.
“So far so good. The election is going on smoothly without any report of ballot snatching or thuggery, ‘’ Okei-Odumakin said.
