Event

People in Ondo state will vote for their next governor in elections on Saturday, October 10. The incumbent governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party will be challenged by Eyitayo Jegede of the main opposition party, the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP), and 15 other candidates. The election is expected to be tightly contested as no party has managed to exert consistent control of the state, with Ondo having been governed by four different political parties since 1999.

In the run-up to and during the election, increased partisan activities are expected throughout the state and a heightened security presence is likely in the vicinity of large-scale electoral-related events. Disruptions to businesses and other services are possible on polling day.

Advice

Those in Ondo state are advised to monitor developments and remain apprised of the political situation, avoid all public demonstrations and political gatherings as a precaution, avoid discussing politically sensitive topics in public, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
