The Chairman of the State Independent Electoral Commission, Mr. Segun Oladitan has reiterated the commitment of the newly inaugurated board of the commission to conduct a free, fair and transparent local government election in the state.
The Chairman stated this during the meeting of the board held at the headquarters of the commission in Osogbo. He noted that members of the Commission are people that have made their mark in their various callings and as such would not engage in acts that would tarnish their image.
He stressed that the Commission would adhere strictly to the principle of one man, one vote with a view to making the vote of the people to count. He stressed further that the Commission will not serve the interest of any person or group no matter the pressure from either politicians or any self seeking individual.
He therefore solicited for the support of all and sundry particularly the media so that the effort of the Commission to enshrine an enduring democratic principle yields positive result.
