He cited logistical challenges resulting in the late arrival of materials and personnel as the reason the exercise did not take place in Okitipupa local government as planned.

The governor expressed satisfaction with the primary election process, commending stakeholders and party members for their participation and orderly conduct.

However, concerns have been raised by some aspirants and their agents regarding the conduct of the primary election. Olugbenga Edema, one of the aspirants, highlighted delays in material distribution and called for an investigation into the process to ensure credibility.
