The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and political stakeholders in the state have promised a conducive atmosphere for peaceful poll.
Idris spoke yesterday in Osogbo, the state capital, at a one-day seminar he organised for stakeholders in the election.
The theme of the seminar was, “Imperativeness of police collaboration with essential stakeholders: Towards secured, free, fair and credible election in Nigeria.”
He allayed fears about the poll, and urged people to put their minds at rest, as the police collaborate with other agencies to provide adequate security for the peaceful conduct of the election.
He said each of the local governments in the state would be massively policed to ensure a nonviolent election.
According to him, critical stakeholders would still meet to plan, adding that the police would distribute telephone numbers for residents to call in case of violence in any part of the state.
He however appealed to political parties and their supporters to conduct themselves properly within the ambit of the law to achieve the desire objective.
