According to the Minister, “peace and security are necessary conditions for election.
All the security agencies in the country, including the NSCDC, are therefore on top of their game. They will leave no stone unturned to provide adequate security for the conduct of free and fair elections. Nigerians should therefore keep their minds at rest”.
