Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission OGSIEC has charged its Election Returning Officers recently trained for the July 24 councils'poll, to let the will of the people prevail at the poll

His words," We want your watchword to be integrity, probity, accountability, we want you to be people of good standing because what ever you do, reflect upon us .We know you will not let us down and I want to assure you also that we will not let you down, what is due to you, we will make sure you get. We must ensure that the will of the people prevail. God will help us all as we do this"

Osibodu enjoined them to avoid act capable of putting the commission in bad light by ensuring good conduct during and after the election excercise, saying they have been carefully selected for the assignment

" I have no doubt about you, all but all the same I have to come and get to know you all better, so that you will know we mean business . Every body here today has been carefully selected for this assignment,we have seen your credentials and we know that you do the job", he added

The OGSIEC boss urged the Electoral Officers to make good use of the training, while advising them to restrain themselves from places and friends that may stir suspicion, as they must be seen to be neutral.
