"While there is no gubernatorial election in Osun State, voters will still choose members of the House of Assembly, which is why we have brought out ballots and a results sheet. They will be divided up into Local Governments in batches. There are thirty locations where you can find them. They have already been customized, making it simpler to deploy them to different Local Governments.

"What we're saying is that the security has promised us that the right deployment would be done, especially in those areas where violence has been the norm. From the Ward level up to the Local Government and State collation levels, we will safeguard all of our various levels of collecting. We'll make sure all of our armed security professionals are present.
