“However, I will urge INEC to continue to improve,” Kolawole said.
Commenting on security situation, the PDP flagbearer, said that the town was peaceful at the moment.
According to him, if there is any chaos, the security should be able to nip it in the bud, owing to their presence in large numbers.
“I want to tell you that there are enough security men on ground to ensure peace, but if there is any chaos, I believe the security should be held responsible,” Kolawole said.
He called on the security men to arrest anybody that planned to forment trouble.
“We are not saying security men should rig the election for anybody, but I want them to do their jobs without favouritism or being partisan,” the governorship candidate said.

“I must say that the large presence of security men has enhanced the peace of this community.
“Any technological innovation that would enhance the digitisation of the electoral process is welcomed,”Adetunmbi said
