Aregbesola, who spoke through his Media Adviser, Mr. Sola Fasure, said: “We expect to win at the first ballot. We believe in the rule of law and due process and democrats, we will abide by INEC’s decision, it is okay by us. If there was no cancellation in those areas, we would have won outrightly without the need for the rerun.”
