Seyi Makinde Tasks Security Agencies on Peaceful Polls

The Peoples Demicratic Party gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde has called on the state’s Commissioner of Police and the Director of the State Security Service to as a matter of urgency summon an emergency meeting of leaders of all political parties on current security situation in the state.
According to a statement from his campaign organisation and signed by Prince Dotun Oyelade, Makinde asserted that “the government that should enforce peace and the Governor who should be the Chief Security Officer have abandoned their roles and become partisan”.
Makinde said that security chiefs must take his advice seriously “because thugs of the government party, the All Progressives Congress are getting bolder, more desperate and audacious with each passing day, having realised that electoral defeat is imminent”.
He cited the recent unprovoked attack on his entourage at Ojoo in Akinyele Local Government and other previous attacks on the opposition.
“What is more worrisome is the threat of attacks on harmless supporters who are not necessarily card carrying members of our party but who simply want change and better governance”, Makinde stressed.
The PDP flagbearer promised that he would attend such peace meeting gladly because he wants a peaceful poll and does not want bloodletting in the name of seeking political office.
