The candidates also signed a peace accord at the meeting.
The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr. Sam Olumekun, said the commission was ready to conduct free, fair, and credible elections without compromising standards in the state.
He commended stakeholders and media’s contributions to the success of the 2019 general elections, saying without their support the success of the elections would not have been possible.
