Ondo INEC Office: ADC Guber Candidate call for Peace, security, Justice

  ADC's  Adelegan in company of others during his visit to INEC office

The Ondo State Gubernatorial candidate under the umbrella of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Prince Adedapo Adelegan has called for Peace and security in the state.

The guber candidate made this call following the fire outbreak at the state Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office which destroyed more than 5000 card readers. 

Adelegan who paid a courtesy visit to INEC office describe the incident as projecting a wrong perception of the 'peaceful people of Ondo State.'

While praying for peace in the forthcoming election, he urged INEC and security officials to beef up security of lives and property.

He also pleaded that all concerned ensure justice prevails.

Adelegan in his address to INEC officials said, "We condemn the act of the fire outbreak at the INEC office that destroyed 2 container loads of card reader, it is both disturbing and condemnable. It projects a negative perception of our polity, which itself is not a reflection of the peaceful people of Ondo State. We commiserate with INEC and thank God that the fire is only limited to loss of equipment and not loss of life. 

"As this cannot continue, we appeal to the executive governor and political parties in Ondo State to let peace reign and prevent the act of this nature between now and the election from taking place.

"I will also like to encourage INEC to strengthen its premises to ensure safety of life and property going forward, and appeal to our security forces who are working tirelessly, to please ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice.

"The ADC is determined to ensure that its supporters across the length and breath of Ondo State maintain peace, and conduct themselves inline with the electioneering laws during the electioneering period in October.

"Once again, we pray and hope for a peaceful election."
