Founding Director General of PDP Governors Forum Osaro Onaiwu has called on INEC, Police and other Nigerian security agencies to replicate the professional conduct they exhibited in Edo election in the forthcoming Ondo election.

Onaiwu speaking on Tuesday said the conduct of INEC, Police, military and other paramilitary outfits involved in the Edo governorship election has earned them local and international commendation.

He urged these agencies of government to consolidate on their good showing by remaining above board in the Ondo governorship election which comes up this Saturday.

“With what we saw during Edo election, the various agencies on election duties can behave professionally if they choose to. I urge them to allow the will of people to prevail in Ondo, just like they did in Edo,” Onaiwu said.

He further enjoined INEC and the police not to succumb to pressures from any quarters to compromise the election. “The whole world is watching them to see if their outing in Edo was just a fluke,” he opined.

Three leading candidates are set to slug it out in the October 9 Ondo gubernatorial election. Incumbent governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of the APC will face stiff challenge from PDP’s Eyitayo Jegede and Agboola Ajayi who is the current deputy governor and flying the flag of ZLP.

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said politicians must begin to prioritise the vehicle of governance to benefit the people, adding that political leaders must remain selfless for Nigeria to attain its full potential.

Speaking to journalists in Benin City, Obaseki said he is not in government to be famous or make money at the expense of ensuring development that will benefit the people.

The governor noted that there is need for a mechanism to be put in place to ensure transparency in government, noting, “Only few persons in government are held accountable for their decisions in government.”

According to him, “I am not in government to make money; I am not in government for fame. I am in government to serve. The youths are the reasons why I am in government. If I cannot serve you, I will quit.”

He added: “The issues of better government, proper governance and transparency are what we are emphasising. When we have younger people who can use technology in government, we will have transparency and accountability, which informed my decision to have many younger people working for my government.

“For things to be working in Nigeria there are structural challenges that we must fix. Let us not gloss over the cracks. Let us go to the foundation and begin to fix the conditions because the cracks are expanding so wide.”

Obaseki continued: “In a democracy, you need an institution that will ensure law and order and that is why we have the security agencies.

“Our security arrangement in the country must reflect our federal system as I can’t be a governor of a state and not able to hire and fire my Commissioner of Police, but #ENDSARS protests have helped us start the process.”

An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Kaduna State, Yusuf Ali, has cautioned Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni, who is the party’s Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-ordinary Convention Committee , against extending the six-month tenure prescribed for the committee to hold an extraordinary convention to elect new leadership.

Ali, who made the call while speaking with reporters in Kaduna yesterday, said the report making the round that the Buni-led committee might seek an extension to reform the party, would be counter-productive.

“Majority of the party members indeed welcome the Buni-led caretaker committee with open arms and the committee also enjoyed widespread support across the party especially when it began the reconciliation of aggrieved party members and leaders.

“However, four months down the line, there are speculations in the media on alleged moves by the Buni-led committee to seek an extension. I am appealing to them not to follow that trajectory even though the committee hasn’t refuted the media report.”
