In a bid to further ensure safety and security in the forthcoming Gubernatorial and State Houses of Assembly elections holding on Saturday, April 11, 2015, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba CFR, NPM, NPOM, mni has ordered a restriction of
vehicular movement in all the thirty-six (36)
States of the Federation from 8am to 5pm on Saturday, April 11, 2015 only.

This restriction excludes vehicles on essential duty such as Fire Service, Ambulances and vehicles used by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and law enforcement/security agencies.
There is no restriction of vehicular movement in the Federal Capital Territory as there is no election taking place there on the said date. The IGP assures that adequate security logistics and manpower have been strategically deployed to achieve a most conducive electioneering atmosphere. In this regard, Policemen for election duty have been properly briefed on their roles as stipulated in the Electoral Act. They are expected to be professional, non-partisan, civil but firm in their approach and relation to the public. Meanwhile, citizens are enjoined to remain
vigilant and report all suspicious movements or
dealings to appropriate Police authority.
