NEWLY ELECTED OSUN COUNCILLORS GET CERTIFICATES OF RETURN
The 389 councillors that were elected during the parliamentary election into all local government wards in Osun State on Saturday were given their certificates of returns today.
The Chairman of the Osun Independent Electoral Commission, (OSIEC) Chief Segun Oladitan while presenting the certificates of returns to the winners at the OSIEC office in Osogbo congratulated the winners.
The OSIEC chairman said the election was unique because it was the first parliamentary election at local government level in the country.
Out of the 389 councillors, 318 were returned unopposed while the election took place only in 71 wards as the main opposition party in the state, the Peoples Democratic Party boycotted the election because of the introduction of the parliamentary system by the state government.
Oladitan said the election was free and fair and that the winners emerged under transparent process.
