On his part, former Governor Mimiko urged the people of the state to vote ZLP and resist rigging on the election day.

He stated that the people should not be intimidated over the insinuation that federal might and violence will play a huge part in the polls.

Presenting the flag of the party to the candidate on behalf of the National Chairman of the party, Mr Dan Iwuanyawu , the state Chairman of the party, Chief Joseph Akinlaja, asked the supporters of the party to go back to their respective wards to work and ensure the ZLP win the election.
