The African Democratic Congress governorship Candidate, Gboyega Isiaka has called on the electorates to stand by their votes on Saturday adding that intimidations should be ignored.
Isiaka who stated this in a Press release signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of his campaign organisation, Bolaji Adeniji assured voters of their security saying plans are in place to curb any form intimidation.
In the release, Isiaka urged the electorate to troop out and vote in accordance with their conscience without fear or intimidation.
The statement noted that a lot of clandestine activities by the opposition have been uncovered in the last few days, part of which includes physical intimidation of eligible voters especially in areas favourable to the opposition.
His words, “Our principal, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka hereby urge the voting public to troop out massively on Saturday and vote for the ADC. We are aware of the plans to instil fear in the mind of the electorate and prevent them from exercising their franchise”.
“The state of insecurity has heightened since the war of attrition started between the APC and APM. In the last four weeks, several casualties have been recorded during fights between them and they have threatened a repeat show at the polls.
“We are confident that the security agencies will do their work and I appeal to our people to stand by their votes until it is counted at every polling booth. When we stand by it, it becomes difficult for manipulations”.
“They cannot win the election because the people have left them, hence their resort to violence and intimidation. I want to assure that every vote will count and the legitimate winner will be declared. We have full plans to ensure this happens and protect our votes”.
On his alleged alliance with some other opposition parties, Isiaka debunked any of such insinuations.
“We are solidly in ADC and we shall go to the polls just as we are confident of victory because we are set to offer good governance that will usher in a life of ease for all and through this platform, ADC.”
