Mr. Mba said in a statement that the objective of the restriction is to prevent political violence. 

He said, “The [police inspector-general] reiterates that the vehicular restriction order, among other things, is aimed at preventing political actors and trouble-makers from freely engaging in unpatriotic acts – circulation and use of illicit arms and hard drugs, movement of political thugs from contiguous States to Ondo State and disruption of the electoral processes, etc – which are inimical to the dictates of the electoral laws.”

APC’s Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and PDP’s Eyitayo Jegede are the leading contenders in this election, but about 15 others will participate.
