Share

From Rasaq Ibrahim, Ado-Ekiti

A former governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Olusegun Agbalajobi, has enjoined the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to ensure that tomorrow’s governorship election is free, fair and credible.

He urged the electoral umpire and security agencies to exhibit highest degree of impartiality, neutrality and non-partisanship while discharging their duties, without fear or favour to any party.

The APC chieftain, who addressed reporters on Thursday at his Oye-Ekiti home, as part of the activities to mark his 60th birthday, advised the electorate to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner before, during and after the poll.

He said peace is necessary for the smooth conduct of the electoral exercise.

Agbalajobi stressed that the ambition of any politician does not worth the blood of any Nigerian.

He cautioned youths not to allow themselves to be used as thugs by desperate politicians, who want to get power at all cost.
