“We want everybody to be carried along. We want reputable groups as monitors present at polling units, not people that will just be moving about.”

Also speaking, Oba Adejugbe stated that the people would be happy if the most popular candidate wins the election.

He said, “We want peace and vote to count. If the most popular candidate won at the end of the day, nobody would raise a voice.”

The Ogoga of Ikere-Ekiti, Oba Adejimi Alagbado, warned against the experience of the 1983 election violence where many houses were burnt in the old Ondo State.

He said, “We are concerned about safety in our domain; we don’t want Ekiti to be a battleground. We want the choice of the people to emerge as governor in the election.”

He said, “We are on the side of the people. We are here to support free, fair, credible and peaceful election.

“The eyes of the world will be on Ekiti on July 14. We would be here and we won’t let you down.”
