Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Friday morning, September 11 2020, visited the state Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, headquarters which was gutted by fire barely 24 hours ago.
Akeredolu while paying an unscheduled visit to the office of the Commission in Akure, described the incident as unfortunate and shocking.
He charged the Commission to unravel the cause of the fire incident.
The fire incident, which gutted the office at about 8:30 pm burnt over 5,114 card readers meant for the October 10 governorship election in the state.
Akeredolu, however, commended the determination of the commission to still conduct the forthcoming governorship despite the ugly incident and assured that the state government would be ready to render assistance to the commission in any area where it would not be termed as being partisan.
