“Where elections are concerned, it is a matter of public record that Jonathan is committed to free, fair and the integrity of elections.

“This is in fact one of the major areas of achievements of his administration’’, the statement said.

According to it, in the Ekiti election and any other elections, the government is committed to one man, one vote; and one woman, one vote.

“At the same time, the security agencies have an obligation to ensure that the people, who want to compromise the integrity of the process, are not allowed to do so.

“Rather than cry wolf where there is none, it is the APC and its leaders that should embark on soul searching’’, it added. (NAN)
