…charges citizens to exercise their franchise

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday, called for peaceful and coordinated polls during the local government election holding on Saturday.

The governor stated this in Ogbomoso during the official presentation of flags to candidates of the Peoples’ Democratic Party(PDP) in the five local governments of Ogbomosoland, who are standard-bearers of the party in the Saturday election.

He spoke at a rally held in Oja-Igbo,Ogbomoso, adding that electing right people into local government will deepen the development already activated by his administration at the state level.

Makinde admonished the politicians to make elections peaceful and prayed that elections will not claim the life of anybody.

The governor reiterated that his administration will construct the Iseyin-Ogbomoso road to smoothen the journey from Ibadan and drastically cut traveling time.

The governor said: “Your vote is what will make the projects we are doing in the state spread to the local government level. All the campaigns you held lately have been peaceful.

So, I want to urge you to make the election peaceful as well and I pray that the forthcoming election will not claim the life of anyone.

“From Ibadan to Ogbomoso, we spent over two hours on the federal road, but the state government has constructed a road from Ibadan to Iseyin, which is about 40 minutes.

“I want to assure you again that the state government will construct another road from Iseyin to Ogbomoso, which will also amount to a 40-minutes drive.

“Very soon, this administration will clock two years. With all the challenges we have been able to surmount through the grace of God, we cannot but be grateful to Him. All our candidates in Ogbomosoland, you need to vote for them.”

He, therefore, appealed to the electorates to cast their votes for the standard-bearers of PDP, saying that the Party will not disappoint the electorates.

The rally had in attendance the Chairman,Oyo state Governor’s Advisory Commitee, Senator  Hosea Agboola; commissioners,Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Chairmen of the parastatal and the leadership of the party at the State Working Committee level.
