for the 2022 governorship race in Osogbo City Stadium, which was well guarded.
Senator Ademola Adeleke, the party’s governorship candidate for 2018, is competing against Prince Dotun Babayemi and Mr. Sanya Ominrin for the position.
Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, Dele Adeleke, and Fatai Akinbade all pulled out of the race.
A section of the Obafemi Awolowo Way was closed to traffic as part of security precautions.
At the entrance to the site, there was also an abnormally heavy security presence of State Security Service operatives, police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, personnel of the Road Safety Corps, and operators of the Amotekun corps, as everyone entering were required to identify themselves.
Traders with facemasks and party emblems took advantage of the big crowds to do brisk business, offering their items to party supporters entering the arena.
Aside from the screening at the main entry, another screening was held at the gate leading to the stadium’s main bowl.
None of the officials in charge of the primary have arrived at the site as of 09:55 a.m.
