“l also believe the issue of ballot box snatching has is now a  thing of the past”

The State Chairman of  ODIEC Prof. Dinakin said the essence of the visit was to seek support of the monarch and  his  entire chiefs for massive participation of  the electorate in the polls.

Dinakin who noted that the flagging off of the sensitization was to keep people informed that  the election would hold as scheduled despite the call for its shift in  some quarters.

While allaying the fear over the issue of coronvirus, Dinakin said the election  would  hold next month .

Also, the State Coordinator of Women Led NGO, Mrs. Folake Esan appealed to the monarch as a custodian of culture on the need to invite the  organization to the next palace meeting to sensitize chiefs and the people on the election.
