As the Bayelsa State governorship election approaches, the air is filled with a mix of anticipation and concern. In the run-up to the election day on Saturday, the Nigeria Police Force has stepped forward to reassure the public, emphasizing that there is no need for alarm. This move comes as a response to growing apprehensions about the potential for unrest and security issues during the electoral process.

Electoral integrity is the cornerstone of any democratic society. The credibility of election results hinges on a fair and transparent process, ensuring that the will of the people is accurately reflected. Any compromise to this integrity undermines the democratic ideals that nations strive to uphold. INEC’s commitment to investigating and addressing allegations of forged result sheets in Kogi is crucial in preserving the trust of the electorate in the democratic process.

Elections are a cornerstone of any democratic society, representing the voice of the people in shaping their government. However, concerns about security can cast a shadow over this democratic celebration. In Bayelsa State, where political rivalries have occasionally escalated into violence in the past, the need for a secure and peaceful election is paramount.

In an effort to allay the fears of the public, the Nigeria Police Force has issued statements emphasizing their commitment to ensuring a safe and secure electoral environment. The reassurance is not just a formality but a strategic move to build confidence among citizens, encouraging them to exercise their democratic rights without fear.

As the Bayelsa State governorship election looms on Saturday, the Nigeria Police Force seeks to allay concerns, emphasizing that there is no need for alarm.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made this declaration on Friday in response to recent protests in Bayelsa State.

Police officers dispersed a group of women who gathered at the command headquarters in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, demanding the removal of Commissioner of Police, Tolani Alausa, accusing him of bias.

In an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today, Adejobi assured the public, stating, “I am sure that the DIG in charge of the election in Bayelsa State has reacted to that. There was a protest in Bayelsa, but I don’t know much about it. Every Nigerian read it in the news, and the DIG had reacted to that. So there is no cause for alarm. Everybody has the right to protest.”

He continued, highlighting the presence of senior officers on the ground and their ability to assess and respond appropriately to the situation. “I can assure you that our deployments are already paying off,” Adejobi added, emphasizing the effectiveness of the measures taken to ensure a smooth and secure electoral process in Bayelsa State.
