After we had to trek from Governor’s road axis of Ikotun to Isheri-Olofin axis of Ikotun-Ijegun road we observed that turn out of voters was low and we can really say why.
However, everywhere was peaceful and voters were seen following the instructions of INEC officials (Independent National Electoral Commission).
INEC officials arrived early in most polling units as observed.
We also observed that there were road blocks mounted along the Ikotun-Ijegun road from the BRT bus stop to Oja by soldiers however they were not harassing those using their legs to journey to their polling units but stopping those who had no business moving via vehicles if it is not election related.
Also, some businesses were opened especially food vendors while the youthful residents turned their streets into football fields (I guess that is another reason for the low turn out).
Ikotun falls under Alimosho Local Government Area in Lagos State.
