Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has doused the tension over the rumoured premeditated attacks to be carried out during the coming Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in Ogun state.
Vanguard reports that, Osinbano, while addressing the crowd at Kuto, Itoku, Lafenwa and Panseke markets in Abeokuta, said security reports reaching the presidency indicated that some people in a position of higher authority in the state have been threatening fire and brimstone thereby, discouraging the electorate from coming out in the coming Saturday, March 9 Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state. He said:
We will do all humanly possible within the ambit of the law to provide adequate security for all and sundry on and after the coming Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state.
So, don’t panic as we are up to the task ahead. The coming Governorship election in Ogun state is very crucial and we should all come out and vote.
And you are to cast your votes for Prince Dapo Abiodun as the Ogun state governor. Also, vote for all House of Assembly candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election.
By and large, ensure your votes are counted in your presence before you leave the polling booths. “Don’t let us turn our back at the APC, because it is the only party that can take us to the next level. And we should not cast our votes for any other party than the APC.
