Ahead of the Saturday, March 6 local government poll, the Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movements from 12 midnight on Friday, March 5 to 4 pm Saturday, March 6, 2021.

The order was given in a statement signed by the Ag. Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bright Edafe, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), and made available to journalists on Thursday in the state.

The CP noted that voters billed to exercise their civic rights were encouraged and would not be prevented from doing so.

He, however, exempted all essential service providers including NUPENG tanker drivers/workers, PHCN, GSM service providers, hospitals/clinics staff, fire services and media houses, saying that “their safety is guaranteed while carrying out their lawful duties during the election.

“Only those on official and emergency duties with valid means of identification as well as the electorate with permanent voters cards, going to their registered polling units to cast their votes, will be allowed passage during the restriction order,” he added.

While regretting the inconvenience the restriction order would cause commuters

accessing other states through Delta State, the CP enjoined them to take alternative routes or make do with other contingency plans.

CP Ali, who wished Deltans a hitch-free election, further urged all stakeholders to conduct themselves peacefully before, during and after the exercise, as well as respect the rules guiding the process.
