Police praise Ekiti citizens after successful elections

23 June 2014, 08:27Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Abubakar, has commended Nigerians, particularly the people of Ekiti State, for their peaceful conduct throughout the just-ended gubernatorial election held in the state.
According to a statement signed by Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, the Inspector-General of Police is particularly pleased with the high level of comportment, discipline, orderliness, patience and understanding exhibited by the citizens throughout the period.

He said the IGP also commended the huge assistance extended to the police and other law enforcement agencies by the citizens which made the election hitch-free.

Mba added that the Inspector-General of Police called for a similar level of citizens’ cooperation and support for the police and other relevant agencies in other places especially in Osun State where similar elections will take place soon.

He enjoined citizens to remain calm, confident, hopeful and trusting in the ability of the police and other relevant agencies to discharge their constitutional mandate of ensuring the safety of lives and property and protecting the democratic rights and freedoms of the citizens.

He pledged the preparedness of the Force to consolidate and re-enact the Ekiti security success story in other future elections.  

He said the Inspector-General of Police had equally praised police and other security agencies assigned to election duties in Ekiti for their professional conduct throughout the election period, noting that their exemplary conduct was an eloquent indicator of the readiness of the force to provide the needed atmosphere for future elections in the country.

Ayo Fayose, the ruling People's Democratic Party candidate won the Ekiti poll
