<p class="">Alao urged the officers to ensure smooth movement of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and election materials.</p>

<p class="">We have certified INEC vehicles and are in the process of certifying NURTW vehicles that INEC will use in moving election materials because we do not want a situation where a vehicle will break down when transporting election materials.</p>

<p class="">With this training, the officers have been educated not to compromise and not go beyond its specified role and I amconfident FRSC will not disappoint Nigerians, Alao said.</p>

<p class="">She said that 2,000 personnel of the corps would be deployed to complement other security agencies that would be at the polling units on election day.</p>

<p class="">Alao, however, warned voters that would be voting in distant locations to go a day ahead, saying there would be restriction on movement on the day.</p>

<p class="">In his lecture, the representative of INEC in the state,Mr Michael Alabi, said FRSC and other security agencies have major roles to play in conducting free and credible polls.</p>

<p class="">Alabi urged them to be professional in discharging their duties and not to allow any politician to use them for selfish gains.</p>

<p class="">He also urged the FRSC to work in synergy with other security agencies and ensure the security of INEC staff and materials as well as the electorate.</p>

<p class="">Also speaking, the representative of the police in the state, ACP Joseph Eribo, urged security agents to shun anything that would jeopardise their career .</p>

<p class="">Politics will come and go, dont do anything you know you cannot account for.</p>

<p class="">The goals of the security agencies is to have a peaceful election in Nigeria and we will do everything to ensure the election is peaceful, Eribo, the Area Commander of Agodi Division, said.</p>
