Avoid Violence, Osun REC Tells Politicians
The Osun State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Adekunle Ogunmola, has charged politicians to eschew violence and conduct themselves in peaceful manners to make next month’s general elections successful. Speaking at the 7th edition of “The Front-liners”, an enlightenment programme organised by veteran journalists in Osun State, Ogunmola urged the two major political parties in the country to give peace a chance.
The REC noted that the postponement of the elections will further guarantee the safety of over 700 ad-hoc staff to the used by the commission as it is an opportunity for the security operatives to be better prepared in securing the nation. He added that the shift will facilitate the participation of more eligible voters as more people are now collecting their Permanent Voter’s cards.
