Akure- Mr Olusegun Agbaje, the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner in Ondo state, on Friday cautioned politicians against inciting statements capable of overheating the polity.
Agbaje, who gave the advice while interacting with Journalists in Akure, urged political party leaders, their candidates and followers to stop creating fears in the minds of the electorate through their comments.
He urged stakeholders to join hands with INEC to encourage Nigerians to come out enmasse with their PVCs on election days to vote for the candidates of their choice.
He urged the electorate to desist from acts capable of working against the conduct of the elections.
He announced that the commission would punish any permanent or ad hoc staff who engaged in any illegal activity during the elections.
Agbaje also stated that INEC had decentralised the distribution of PVCs to enable more registered voters to collect their cards before the elections. (NAN)
