AHEAD of tomorrow’s election in Ekiti State, the Nigeria Police Force on Friday assured electorate of adequate security, noting that the force does not belong to any political party.
Also, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Mr Jimoh Moshood, who featured on Channels Television breakfast programme, hinted that the deployment of 30,000 personnel to Ekiti is to ensure adequate security in the nook and cranny of the state before and during the gubernatorial election.
According to him, “Going to Ekiti with 30,000 personnel is to ensure that everything is in order and to guarantee a secure environment for the electorates.
“We are assuring the people of Ekiti that the Nigerian police is apolitical. We don’t belong to APC or PDP, we don’t belong to any political party. There are 35 political parties involved in this and all of them have the right to be protected.
“Every political party has the right so to be allowed to do what is expected of them in the electoral act. Every party have the right to have their observer and the point where votes are being cast and we have to provide security for this,” he added.
