INEC has fixed election for Ido-Osi Constituency 1 in the Ekiti House of Assembly for April 15.

Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Prof. Ayobami Salami, made the declaration at Ado-Ekiti on Thursday while presenting Certificates of Return to 25 other members of the House who were elected on March 18.

INEC declared the election in Ido-Osi Constituency 1 of the state inconclusive because of disruption of the exercise by suspected hoodlums.

He expressed the preparedness of INEC to conduct peaceful and hitch-free supplementary election in the polling units on April 15.

He appealed to stakeholders in the constituency to cooperate with the electoral body and with security agencies for a successful conclusion of the process.

“The Commission has only three polling units in Ido-Osi Constituency 1 where election was inconclusive.

“The inconclusive election will be concluded on April 15. We are prepared; we are ready to conduct the election.

“We appeal to all the stakeholders in Ido-Osi Constituency 1 to please, cooperate with INEC and with the security agencies so that the Commission can have a successful conclusion of the process.

“I believe we shall get more support and more collaboration of all stakeholders.

“We need to work with the security agencies; with political parties; with civil society organisations and with all stakeholders to ensure that we have a successful election in the place,” Salami said.
