The REC, who was represented by the Head of Department, Election and Party Monitoring, Mr Shehu Muhammad, said the commission had embarked on series of engagement with different groups and stakeholders; educating people on the need for collaboration that would guarantee a peaceful poll.

He said “Going by the level of preparedness towards the conduct of the governorship election today in Osun State, we are 95 per cent ready as the office has taken delivery and custody of virtually all non-sensitive materials, and batching has been done at local government areas.
