Nigeria: Monitor Your Votes, Adeoti Tells Electorate

Osogbo — The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has urged voters not to be intimidated by the opposition in the September 22 election.At a rally in Ede, the hometown of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, Adeoti urged the people to defend their votes.

He appealed to the electorate to go and collect their Permanent Voter's Card (PVC) and resist the alleged imposition of candidate by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adeoti, who charged the security agencies to be professional in their conducts, assured his supporters that they would be protected by the security agents.He vowed that he would win the election. "I will be sworn in on the 27th November as the governor of this state. When we took Rauf Aregbesola around then, we told him that he would be sworn in, and he was sworn in. By the grace of God, I am going to be sworn in as the next governor."

Adeoti promised that his administration would ensure payment of workers salary on the 25th of every month, recalling that he did it when he was the chairman of Iwo Local Government.

"If you vote for me on September 22, every policy will be rejigged. We will constitute a panel to look into everything and removed those that are not good. "We won't do what people will not like. We won't pocket our party chairman. I will allow my chairman to function. Our party chairman will not be like a chairman that is not functioning."

The ADP candidate alleged that the present administration deceived workers with promotion without telling them when it will be effective. "When I become governor by the grace of God, promotion of workers will be effective from January. We will settle workers salary before we embark on any other work. Salary of workers must be paid by 25th."
