The Benin monarch advised the electorate to vote wisely, saying they should not allow primordial sentiments becloud their sense of judgment.

In addition, he cautioned youths not to allow themselves to be used as thugs by politicians to disrupt the electoral process.

The monarch in a statement by his Chief Secretary, Mr. Desmond Agbama, stressed the need for security agencies to be neutral while providing security on election day.

Oba Ewuare II said: “At this critical moment in the nation’s political journey, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must prove itself as an unbiased electoral umpire.

‘’The Benin Crown remains non-partisan. Hence a level playing ground was provided for all politicians to campaign and canvass for vote irrespective of their political parties.’’
