The Resident Electoral Commission (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Oyo State, Dr Mutiu Agboke has bowed out from the commission after a successful tenure of five years.
Management and members of staff of the commission held a valedictory at the headquarters of the commission in Ibadan.
Addressing journalists at the event Dr Agboke said he had contributed meaningfully for electoral process, and stepping out fulfilled after serving the people of Oyo State meritoriously.
He stated that the commission in about five years of his tenure has given electorates in the state value for their votes by ensuring that their vote counted at various elections in the state.
Agboke said even though residents of the state before now doubted the commission’s sincerity in making their votes count, but that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) credibility was protected in all ramification.
Dr Mutiu Agboke began his five years tenure with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ondo State in 2017 and was later redeployed to Oyo State in 2018.
