The Action Alliance has urged Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu not to use the local security outfit, Amotekun, against opposition political parties before, during and after the Ondo State governorship election, holding on October 10.
James Vernimbe, National Secretary of the party, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.
Vernimbe said although his party was fit, prepared and ready for the forthcoming election, it was paramount to checkmate the use of the Amotekun security outfit during the polls.
He said: “We urge the government of Ondo State not to use Amotekun security agents against the opposition in the state during the election.
“We also urge all security agencies to be neutral before, during and after the election.”
He also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to uphold its tenets and principles during the entire electoral process.
Vernimbe said that AA would conduct itself in accordance with election guidelines and regulations and was hopeful to emerge winner on October 10.
He advised supporters of the party and residents to conduct themselves properly and shun all forms of election violence during the polls.
