Nothing less than 800 personnel of the Nigerian Police Force have been deployed to Ondo state to monitor the governorship primaries of the People’s Democratic Party PDP.
Ondo state Police Public Relations Officer ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro in a statement said it had secured the venue of the primaries to forestall any break down of law and order.
“We have secured the whole place, as we did during the APC governorship primary election on Monday to ensure that there is no problem throughout the election.
“Right here, we have about 800 personnel and also have other sister agencies to support in ensuring that the place is fully secured.
“We are also optimistic that there won’t be any foul play this time around because all politicians are aware that today is for election and not to cause any unwarranted issues.
“We have also advised the voters to vote and leave the premises and if they have any support to give to their candidate, they can do that after leaving this place,” he said.
The ruling All Progressives Congress APC had on Monday conducted its own primaries, where incumbent governor Rotimi Akeredolu emerged as the party’s candidate
