However, the African Action Congress (AAC), the state chapter of the party, has rejected the election results. The AAC accused both the state electoral body and the PDP of orchestrating a fraudulent and undemocratic process. The party alleged widespread irregularities, violence, intimidation, and various acts of misconduct during the election.

Kayode Babayomi, the State AAC Chair, stated that there were significant delays in the distribution of voting materials, deliberate misplacement of materials, mobilization of PDP thugs to intimidate voters, and undue influence exerted by security operatives. He further claimed that AAC members, including the chairman, were physically assaulted and unlawfully detained, while several of their candidates’ wards were disrupted by PDP thugs.

The AAC demanded the immediate cancellation of the election, labeling it a charade and calling for a new date to conduct a free, fair, and transparent electoral process. They criticized the OYSIEC chairman, Isiaka Olagunje, for allegedly bowing to the influence of the Makinde government and undermining the integrity expected from an electoral process. The party called for Olagunje’s sanction, investigation, arrest, and prosecution as an electoral offender.
