Rotimi Ogunleye’We Complained At A Stakeholders Meeting That The INEC Officers Were Agents Of Aiyedatiwa’

Concerns about the INEC officers—who were purportedly connected to Ondo State Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa—were reportedly voiced during a stakeholder APC meeting, according to Rotimi Ogunleye, the director general of the Olusola Oke Campaign. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

He claimed that even though he voiced concerns about the electoral officers’ impartiality, Senator Omo Ovie Agege disregarded them. He described the APC primaries on Saturday as a painstakingly planned procedure that is intended to collapse right away. He saw how criminals stormed into voting places, disrupting people and prevented them from exercising their right to vote.

The Chairman of the election committee and the Governor of Kogi state, Usman Ododo declared Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the winner of the APC Primary election in the early hours of Monday. The Ondo State governor coasted to victory in 16 of the 18 local government areas. Aiyedatiwa amassed 48,569 votes in the primary to beat his closest rival Mayowa Akinfolarin who pulled 15,347 votes in the election. Olusola Oke’s 14,865 votes got him the third position. However, some Ondo APC aspirants allege foul play in the primary exercise.

He said in an interview with Channels TV, ”Thugs invaded all the election centers in Akure and elections could not hold. We complained at a stakeholders meeting that the INEC officers were agents of Aiyedatiwa. They were going to be electoral officers even where the governor would participate.

One of the aspirants pointed this out to Senator Omo Ovie Agege that these electoral officers were known persons supporting a particular aspirant and they disregarded that. What we witnessed on Saturday was nothing but an arranged process that was skewed to fail from the beginning. Thugs invaded all the polling units and they didn’t allow us to vote.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
