Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Bello, who was represented by the Area Commander in charge of Ido/Osi, Ijero, Moba, Ilejemeje and Efon local governments, Adegbepa Adetoye, has assured the voters that the command was resolute to provide adequate security of lives and property during the July 14 Ekiti State Governorship election.
He gave this assurance in Ido Ekiti during a Town Hall meeting entitled, ‘Vote not Fight’, where he appealed to the electorates to ensure violence free election.
“On our side, we are going to be neutral. We are not going to take sides and we will ensure that we monitor the election in the most professional way to enforce compliance to rules,” said Mr Adetoye.
“Part of our duties is enforcement of law and order. We also owe it a duty to preserve the 1999 constitution and the Electoral Act. We are assuring our people that we shall be civil and neutral in this election,” he added.
