Ondo 2020: Agbajowo charges INEC, security agencies to ensure credible polls

By Maria Ifafesobi
A Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, the Agbajowo Advocacy for Yoruba People’s Right (AAYPR) has charged the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies in the country to ensure that the forthcoming election is free, fair, and credible election.
This was made known in a statement signed by the National President of the group, Mr. Muyideen Olamoyegun, saying the success of the election depends on the neutrality of the electoral body and the ability of the security agencies to maintain law and order before, during, and after the exercise.
The statement reads: urging them to sustain the peace and unity of the country.

“All eyes are on INEC, the security agencies, and the corps members who will conduct the polls. They must respect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and be thorough in their conduct during and after the election.
“Politicians should also be cautioned of their conduct while embarking on campaigns and soliciting for the votes of the electorates, they should remember to play the game according to the rules”.

Mr. Olamoyegun lamented over the violence and misconduct that ensued during the just concluded local government election in Ondo. He described the acts as unlawful.
He however urged political parties and their candidates to corporate with security agencies by ensuring that their supporters are law-abiding, calm, and at peace before, during, and after the conduct of the election.
“The youths must eschew violence. INEC has power over the polls, but it must be seen to be fair and do things right. Security agent must do their best to protect the people before, during, and after the polls” it emphasized.
