Ondo Guber: Be transparent with ongoing CVR, Agboola tells INEC

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the scheduled Ondo state gubernatorial election, H E, Agboola Ajayi, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to ensure the November 16, 2024 Governorship election is transparent enough to discourage litigations.

Addressing news men in Akure, the Ondo State Capital on Monday, Ajayi advised the electoral umpire, to make the PDP’s primary election in the state as a model to work with. The primary election was adjudged the most transparent election to have taken place in the country in recent times.

According to Ajayi, the electoral body, should be challenged by the standard of the PDP primary election and use it as the yardstick to conduct elections, including the pending November 16 Governorship election in Ondo state.

By doing so, the Gubernatorial candidate submitted, “INEC would have been able to conduct an election
devoid of litigations and other excuses” adding that the Ondo PDP primary election can not be challenged by any one because it was conducted in an obviously transparent manner.

The PDP candidate also appealed to the electoral body, to embark on a vigorous enlightenment program to sensitise the voting public to take advantage of it’s ongoing registration exercise and to make owners of the over two hundred thousand uncollected PVC’s in it’s custody to collect them .
The former Reps member, emphasized on the need for INEC to embark on an aggressive media campaign for the public to embrace all the laudable efforts it is making to conduct a plausible election by November 16.

Ajayi further canvassed, that INEC
should continue with its voters registration exercise, till at least a month to the election , declaring that the twenty thousand newly registered voters declared so far, is a bit low, even as he established optimism, that more people would still come out to register for the election, as they will want to really have a say in who governs them in the State.

Ajayi who also advised security agencies to brace up and discharge their responsibilities in absolute terms, registered that, the election will be free and fair If INEC conducts it according to it’s own guidelines, because INEC “has good laws that could make any election credible if strictly adhered to”.
