In some polling units, elections were cancelled. Therefore, the PDP’s state collation agent, Sunkanmi Oyejide, has called for a rerun. Oyejide stated this while speaking about the huge number of polling units in Ikenne, Ogun Waterside, and Remo-North. In this places, election was cancelled due to the non-function of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System machines and violence.

Further, the APC’s state collation agent, Yemi Adelani, however, disagreed with him, saying it was not necessary. Adelani said the collation officer was right to have cancelled the votes.
