Ondo poll: PDP governors accuse APC of desperation
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had enlisted the support of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to secure victory in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State.
The governors’ forum, in a statement by its Secretary, Patrick Okon, also said that INEC should be overhauled.
“We are aware of the plan of APC to get Ondo state by all means, including listing the assistance of INEC,” the governors said in the statement. ”
“We are warning that we will not fold our arms to watch this impunity and daytime robbery. INEC is an umpire and should play its role very well so that the electorates will have confidence in it.”
“From the way things are going, the people are already losing confidence in the commission. INEC should stick to its electoral mandate and should not subvert the law of the land.
“INEC should conduct itself very well in this forthcoming Ondo state governorship election to avoid a repeat of what happen in Edo election.
“We call on Mr. President to caution his party, APC and INEC to be fair in this coming election scheduled for November 26.”
