The governor, who is seeking second term in office, reminded voters that the election provided an opportunity for them to exercise their inalienable right to choose their leaders without intimidation or coercion.

“The people should be allowed to freely choose the type of leader they want in line with electoral principles rather than coercing them,” he said.

He urged all residents to go about their normal businesses and avoid taking the law into their hands in the interest of democracy and development of the state.

Fayemi said that accreditation would hold from 8 a.m. to noon, after which voting would commence.

The governor urged the electorate to make maximum use of the opportunity to exercise their franchise.
