The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji on Friday asked electorates in Ibadan and Oyo State in general to go out en-mass and vote for candidates of their choice as the gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections holds today (Saturday).
Oba Adetunji gave the charge in a statement in Ibadan signed by his Personal Assistant/Director of Media and Public Affaurs, Alhaji Adeola Oloko made available to journalists.
The royal father also cautioned against improper conduct at the polls by critical stakeholders including the electorate, the politicians, the electoral umpire and the law enforcement agents.
Oba Adetunji emphasized that in a contest of more than one person, only an individual would win, adding that “if the contest produces a winner, the winner should be magnanimous in victory, while the loser should be gallant in defeat.”
Oba Adetunji pointed out that “the ambition of any public office seeker is not worth the blood of innocent Nigerians” and that anyone who has no business with the polling centre should keep away from it for the sake of peace.
