Police Service Commission (PSC) has appraised the conduct of Officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force in the Ekiti State Governorship Election held on Saturday.

According to the Commission, the performance of the Nigeria Police Force and other sister security agencies was professional and their conduct satisfactory.

“The Commission monitored the conduct of the Police in the 16 Local Government Areas of the State where the Commission’s Monitors confirmed that the Police teams arrived the Polling Units on time and were civil and courteous in their conduct. Deputy Inspector General of Police, Johnson Kokumo led the Security team for the election and ensured that deployments were timely and well organized.

“The Police also promptly intervened in some reported cases of vote-buying and crowd misbehavior and showed adequate presence in most of the polling units. There was an average of two to five Police Officers in most of the polling units visited by the Commission’s Monitors. There was a massive deployment of Police Officers from different Commands and formations of the Force and this gave the voters a sense of security,” a statement issued the Commission’s Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani, read.

Meanwhile, the Commission says it sees the conduct of the Police in the Ekiti Governorship election as a huge improvement and a good test-run for the 2023 General elections.
