“We have visited all the necessary stakeholders and with the support we got from the security operatives who are on ground to monitor the whole exercises towards ensuring that it’s free, fair and credible.

“We are not in support of any political parties, we are going to make sure that each and every vote counts, we are to see that your vote counts; the votes of every citizen in Oyo State will surely count. We are going to provide very credible, free and fair elections.
