Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, has charged security agents to remain neutral in the ongoing 2020 Ondo State Governorship election.
Agboola Ajayi who is the candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) made the call after casting his vote at about 10.32 a.m at Apoi Ward II, Unit 004.
The deputy governor commended Ondo electorates for turning out in their large numbers to exercise their civic responsibilities.
“Ondo State people are ready to vote freely. In any contest, there must be a winner. They should have allowed the process to be free and fair,” Agboola Ajayi said.
“You can see the turnout that has been very encouraging here. But I want to also say that the way we have seen it here, the security arrangement is a bit compromised which is not exactly what happened in Edo State.
“I want to appeal to the security agents to live up to expectation, be neutral, see that every Nigerian’s vote counts.
“INEC has put in place so many measures and I want to believe they are not also part of this conspiracy.”
Agboola Ajayi is contesting against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
