"It is self-serving and aimed specifically at the gubernatorial primaries of the party", Shittu said.

Minister of Communications Adebayo Shittu has labelled the local council poll in Oyo state on Saturday as a charade. "Elections should not always be about winning, but about taking part", he said. "In the end, APC will win", he said.

Announcing the results in Ibadan on Sunday, John Ajeigbe, the Chairman of Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC), described the election as free, fair and credible.

In their various remarks, Oyo Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude and an election observer of the Forum of Civil Societies Organisation, Mr Friday Maduka, lauded the peaceful conduct of the exercise. "Same shameful scenario occurred at a many polling unit across the state", he said.

"We have proved skeptics and the doubting Thomas wrong with the successful and orderly conduct of the local government election, 11 years after the last one was held".

"I want them to that the losers of today may be the winners tomorrow with tenacity and sense of goal".

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) OYSIEC, Mr Cosmas Oni, confirmed the low turnout, saying he had also visited three local governments as at the time he spoke with Sunday Tribune.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has won all the chairmanship seats in the 33 local government councils and the 35 Local Council Development Areas in the state.

He said many stakeholders within even the ruling APC had distanced themselves from the exercise.

APC congress committee members and INEC officials were sighted at the congress held by the group loyal to the governor.
