In order to ensure all hands are on deck to record a peaceful local government election in Oyo State, the state electoral body, Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) has visited the Department of State Services, Alesinloye, Ibadan.

Speaking on the visit, OYSIEC Chairman, Aare Isiaka Abiola Olagunju, SAN, said the visit was to seek collaboration with the DSS so that the electorates will have confidence to troop out en masse and vote on the election day.

He described voter apathy as the greatest challenge and called for concerted efforts among all the security agencies in the state to prevent molestation and harassment of the electorates on the day of election.

Olagunju explained that it was important for residents to partake in the forthcoming local government election, urging them to see their participation in the poll as a responsibility and duties to be performed as citizens of the state.

“The purpose is to further our collaboration with the security agencies, you recall that we have visited the police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, it is also important for us to visit the DSS too to seek their collaboration for the peaceful conduct of the election, that is why we were there and we are very glad that they have assured us of their Collaboration and assistance in ensuring that election is peaceful and orderly.

“Before the election, we are going to meet all the security agencies again to further strengthen our measures being put in place, so that, there is no problem

“Our message has always been that residents should be assured that the election will be peaceful, transparent, free, and fair, what we want them to do is to  troop out  en masse on the 27th of April, and we assured that their votes will count,” Olagunju said.
