Earlier today, there were reports that security men were preventing voters and journalists from accessing certain polling units in the Osun state rerun election.
Reacting to this, People’s Democratic Party(PDP) presidential hopeful and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar said its very unacceptable.
Atiku said while speaking via twitter on Thursday, that the rerun is being monitored both locally and internationally, therefore the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) must do all it can to redeem it’s pledge of being an impartial umpire.
Reports about voters & observers intimidation by security agents in Osun rerun election is unacceptable & must be stopped. The rerun is being widely monitored in Nigeria & beyond. I hope that @inecnigeria will redeem its pledge of being an impartial umpire. #OsunDecides2018

However INEC reported earlier that all of such issues have been resolved and voting had said smoothly.
It wrote via twitter on Thursday, thus:
All issues of access to polling units by voters, accredited Media & Observers have since been resolved and the exercise is going on well in all the units in spite of the heavy rain in some areas.#OsunDecides2018
