As the electoral body responsible for conducting and managing elections in Kwara State, I urge you to:

– Ensure the integrity and accuracy of the voter register
– Provide equal access to all political parties and candidates

– Train and deploy competent and impartial electoral officials
– Establish clear guidelines for voting and counting procedures
– Ensure transparency in the collation and announcement of results

By fulfilling these responsibilities, you can guarantee a credible and transparent election that reflects the will of the people. This, in turn, will lead to effective local government, which is essential for the prosperity of our state.

The people of Kwara State are watching, and the world is watching. Let us make our state a shining example of democracy in action.
