The Department of State Services (DSS) has promised to support the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure a hitch-free governorship election in Ondo State.
The security agency also vowed to partner sister agencies to ensure that the election which is scheduled for October 10 is successful.
“The Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to assure the public and stakeholders in the Ondo Governorship election scheduled for 10th October 2020 of its preparedness for the exercise.
“In this vein, the Service will not only partner with sister security agencies but support the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the election is hitch-free. It has also enjoined its personnel to remain professional while discharging their duties,” the statement signed by the spokesperson of the commission, Peter Afunanya, read in part.
The Service advised all players in the electoral process to abide by the rules of the game as persons and groups that may wish to engage in violent activities leading to the breakdown of law will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
