OYO GUBER: Former Governor Ladoja laments scenes of ballot snatching



The Zenith Labour Party leader and former governor of Oyo State, Senator Adewolu Ladoja, has lamented the incidence of ballot snatching in the state.

Speaking after casting his vote at Ward 10, Unit 013 on Ondo Street, Bodija Estate, Ibadan, Ladoja said ballot snatchers are having a field day in some polling units across the state.

Ladoja who blamed the development on the lack of concerned security operatives said he had received reports of ballot-snatching at some polling booths on Iwo Road, Aperin, and Oja Igbo.

The party leader said, “Compared to two weeks ago, most of the electoral officials got to their stations on time.

“But it is regrettable that in some areas like Oja Igbo, Aperin, and Iwo Road, ballot boxes were being snatched. It was a field day for the snatchers. I only hope that something will be done about it.

“Whoever emerges should thank God and serve the people to the best of his ability.”
