US speaks on Ekiti governorship election

The United States has said the world is looking forward to the July 14 Ekiti governorship election.

The Consul General, Mr. John Bray, spoke during a meeting with the Ekiti State Council of Traditional Rulers held in the palace of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe.

He was reacting to the request of the council for a free, fair and credible election in a peaceful atmosphere made by the monarchs.

Council Chairman and Oloye of Oye-Ekiti, Oba Oluwole Ademolaju, had asked the US to prevent vote-buying during the July 14 governorship poll in the state.

He said, “We want you to use your good office to bring monitors all over the polling units.
“Security agencies must be above board during and after the elections.

“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.”
