One of the 10 Parliamentary candidates for Constituency 92 election, Henrison Olu- Femi Barnes has said that he will only accept a winning result from the National Electoral Commission after the election.
The All Peoples Congress Party member opted to contest as an Independent candidate after he was denied the party symbol.
OluFemi made this remark during an interview with AWOKO after casting his ballot at the Bathurst REC Primary School with his wife outside polling station 13001 centre number 01.
The polling centre is nestled between hill tops with the road leading to the polling centre in a deplorable condition, children playing under mango trees; many of the houses at Bathurst village are over grown with grass.
The parliamentary candidate, OluFemi looked and sounded confident of winning the election. His cell-phone was constantly beeping with calls from voters and party agents about the process.
“I will win this election because I live here, work here and also help to develop here,” he told our reporter in confidence.
Several friends and relatives of Olu-Femi have been calling his mobile phone explaining the status of the various polling centres which they described as peaceful, free, fair and transparent election.
He said ‘from my observation and reports from my party agents around the constituency there have not been any major problem except that some government vehicles are patrolling some polling centres at Rokel, Grafton and Waterloo.
He confirmed to our reporter that he has made an official complaint to the political party registration Commission (PPRC) and NEC over alleged reports of campaigning with megaphones urging voters to vote APC within constituency 92.
He called on his supporters to be patient and wait for the official results from NEC and urged them to remain peaceful during and after the election.
