He said that the massive security deployment had allayed the initial apprehension of residents over the peaceful conduct of the election.

“I hope their presence encourages people to come out and vote because we all need to vote in all forthcoming elections for those we feel are fit for the respective positions,” Aremu said.

Also, a trader, Mrs Kemi Odesanya, said that the presence of security operatives and others for the election in the state had led to increased sales.

She said since the arrival of visitors and security operatives to the state, sales had increased, “which implies more money for all traders”.

Odesanya said that she intends to perform her civic obligation by coming out to vote in the governorship election because the state deserves a leader worthy of the position. (NAN)
