Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Oyo State, while joining Nigerians and the people of Oyo State, to usher in the new year, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remain an unbiased umpire ahead of the 2019 elections.
He said this in a statement signed by his media assistant, Damola Adeoye.
He asked INEC to dedicate itself to the conduct of free, fair and credible polls. He also asked politicians to eschew all forms of violence, and promote issue based campaigns devoid of propaganda because “occupying public office is a privilege, and not a right.”
He noted: “After years of planning, consultations and interactions, the moment of action is suddenly upon us, given that in the next seven weeks; 16 February, 2019, and 2 March, 2019, National Assembly and Governorship/State Assembly polls will hold respectively.”
He, therefore admonished the people of Oyo State to vote with all sense of responsibility, remembering that decisions taken during the elections will impact their lives for the next four years.
Senator Lanlehin assured the people of Oyo State that “good times are almost here.”
The governorship candidate exoressed confidence that he would emerge governor to “restore smiles to people’s faces, and prosperity to their businesses.”
According to him, “the ADC will run a government the people can truly call their own”.
