The Paradox Of ‘Imole’ That Needed Darkness To Conquer

It was delusional for anyone to have assumed that Osun was in darkness in the Oyetola years, despite the state recording its lowest ever poverty index (8.3%), despite rising from bottom ten to top 15 in the country’s ease-of-doing-business index, despite rising from zero capital inflow to having the country’s third largest foreign capital inflow, among other record breaking feats the administration achieved under four years.

The inability of the self-acclaimed ‘Imole’ to articulate how he would bolster the existing glow in the state was enough source of worry on how a man so clueless intends to govern a state where every citizen is the light and glory of the black race, as captured in the state’s creed. Little did anyone suspect that darkness is where the magic of moonlight lives.

The electoral guideline prescribes that the official close of voting at polling units is 2:30 pm, which a vast majority of polling units across the state complied with in accordance with the electoral law, including those who reported minor glitches in the early hours of the process.

However, Ede South and Ede North, the strongholds of the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Mr Ademola Adeleke, cheated this guideline by continuing voting even till past 10:00pm in the night despite accreditation and voting exercises commencing on the average of 8:30am across the polling units. Those who voted till 10.00pm were no where near the queue by 2.30pm as stipulated by the Electoral Guidelines.

From the Solomonic encounter when two women battled for a living child, this incident proved yet again that fatal exchanges are perpetrated in the dark. In this case, one who claims to be light needed darkness to conquer. The good people of Osun can then begin to imagine what value an agent of darkness can produce if given the right of rule.

This issue of late-night voting in Ede axis is still begging for attention, and a critical review of the situation holds a huge promise for the sanctity of our nascent democracy.
