Femi Makinde, Osogbo 

Voting has been temporarily suspended at the venue of Osun State Peoples Democratic Party Governorship Primary Election holding at GMT Hotel and Event Centre in Osogbo.

There were allegations that some unaccredited delegates are being allowed to vote but it is not clear who the unaccredited delegates are voting for.

Some of the delegates claimed that some former delegates who had left the PDP for the Social Democratic Party were brought in to vote in the exercise.

Our correspondent learnt that the chairman of the PDP in Osun State, Mr Soji Adagunodo, wrote a letter to the National Headquarter of the party to effect the necessary changes in the delegates list but this was not done.

Some of the aggrieved party members were heard booing the chairman and calling him and other party leaders unprintable names.

To calm the frayed nerves down, the Chairman of the Electoral Panel, Seriake Dickson, suspended the exercise temporarily in order to restore sanity and ensure that unaccredited persons do not vote in the exercise.

The population of party members waiting patiently outside the venue is much more than those inside and at a point some persons were said to have made an attempt to force their way inside but security men dispersed them by firing teargas.
