The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has called on the electorates to be eternally vigilant.
He made this call on the heels of the postponement of the Presidential and nNationa assAssem elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Adelabu, in a statement signed by the spokesperson of Friends of Adebayo Adelabu, an independent campaign group (FOBACO), Dr Bayo Busari on Saturday however appealed to the voters not to be discouraged by the shift in election dates.
While saying that all the APC candidates in this year’s general elections have done their best in the campaigns Adelabu expressed the confidence that the shift was just a little delay in their date of victory.
The statement cautioned INEC to remain impartial in the elections in order to ensure fairness and credibility of the process.
He advocated for an environment that will guarantee a seamless electoral process, saying the postponement of the elections, the third in eight years, does not portray the election umpire as having a full control of the process.
He however appealed to Nigerians to identify with INEC and to support the commission to achieve untainted success in the elections for the good of the country.
