 Osinbajo said, “We will do all humanly possible within the ambit of the law to provide adequate security for all and sundry during  and after the coming governorship and houses of assembly elections in the state. So, don’t panic, as we are up to the task ahead.

“The coming governorship election in Ogun State is very crucial and we should all come out and vote. You are to cast your votes for Prince Dapo Abiodun as the Ogun state governor. Also, vote for all House of Assembly candidates of the All Progressives Congress.
