Abuja (Sundisha Post) – Missions of the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States have called on Osun people to continue to support a
peaceful, free, fair, and credible completion of the re-run process in seven polling units where voters were not able to cast their votes during Saturday’s election in Osun.
The groups in a joint statement urged an end to the desperate act of vote buying by the leading parties in Nigeria.

The three missions, who were united in calling for calm and orderliness, said:

“Missions of the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States observed the voting in Osun State September 22. We commend the people of Osun for voting peacefully, the Independent National Electoral Commission for the improved organisation of the election, and security services for their conduct.

We urge that all continue to support a peaceful, free, fair, and credible completion of the process as INEC re-runs the election in seven polling units where — through no fault of their own — voters were not able to cast their votes and have them counted last Saturday. We stress the importance that the re-run should take place without any violence, intimidation, or vote buying.

Whoever wins the election after Thursday’s vote should be magnanimous in victory, and whoever loses should be gracious in defeat.”
