Another voter, Adekunle Lamidi, said that he had relocated from Surulere to Ikorodu but he had to come to the constituency to vote.

“In spite of my relocation, I still arrive in time to vote because many people are enjoying the good work and the development in Surulere,” Adekunle said.

A voter from Ward G unit 1, Alex Amos, however, said that although the turnout was not encouraging, voters would make a good choice who would bring their desired goals in development.

But a mobile court coordinator in Lagos, Arinola Ogbara-Banjoko, said it was not expected to witness a crowd during a by-election.

Ogbara-Banjoko said that residents were resolved to support the election by calling others to come and vote.

“To a large extent, the election was free, smooth and orderly,” Ogbara-Banjoko said.

A senatorial leader, in Ward G, Surulere, Tunde Odunuga, said that the election was peaceful.

He noted that the residents had resolved to support any winner that would bring more development to the area.
