The primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Oyo South Senatorial District has been postponed, DAILY POST gathered.

DAILY POST reports that the election was billed to hold today, Saturday.

Our correspondent recalls that no fewer than nine aspirants purchased the APC nomination forms in the senatorial district, though sources said that some aspirants have withdrawn from the race.

DAILY POST gathered that Oyo South is made up of nine local government areas, six in Ibadan and three in Ibarapa geopolitical zone.

The local government areas are; Ibadan North, Ibadan North East, Ibadan South East, Ibadan South West, Ibadan North West, Ido, Ibarapa East, Ibarapa North and Ibarapa Central.

Our correspondent however gathered that the primary election which was supposed to be held at the housing corporation area has been postponed till tomorrow, Sunday.

The election was postponed when some of the aspirants and delegates arrived at the venue Saturday afternoon.

One of the aspirants, Senator Kola Balogun who confirmed the postponement to journalists at the venue, explained that the election has been postponed till tomorrow, Sunday.

Balogun, who currently represents the district said, “What happened today is similar to what happened the other day at the stadium when they have a weak aspirant and they resorted to intimidation and attempted to frustrate the process.

“The Abuja committee has also found out that non-delegates have infiltrated the venue.

“I am a matured politician, I have been in politics for quite some time. I want to appeal to the people of Oyo South to allow the process to hold. I want the process to hold because, I know that I will win”.

All efforts made by a DAILY POST correspondent and other journalists who were at the venue to get reactions from other aspirants proved to be abortive.

Some of the aspirants who were asked to speak said that they were not ready to talk at the moment.
