Social sharing

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to ignore the call by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, calling for the postponement of the Ondo polls scheduled for 26 November.

The APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni described the call as ‘bizarre’ and said PDP’s problem in the state are ‘self inflicted’.

“The PDP crisis and the aftermath governorship candidate tussle within its ranks are self-inflicted and the PDP cannot hold Ondo state and indeed the country hostage on account of its internal crisis. Instead of making the ridiculous election postponement request on INEC, the PDP should focus and redirect its energy towards putting its house in order.,” Buni said.

The APC also denied the accusation by the PDP faction that it was in conspiracy with both INEC and the judiciary to frustrate the party and manipulate the outcome of the elections.

Buni said: “The APC is not party to any scheme to subvert justice and undermine the very progressive and participatory democracy which the APC fiercely stands for.

“The APC calls on INEC to ignore PDP’s bizarre request and concentrate on delivering a free, fair, credible and transparent ballot on election day.

“The Ondo electorate are wise and will vote for the candidate with a proven track record of performance on election day. A vote for the tested, trusted and credible APC governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN will bring about massive multi-faceted development which has eluded the state.”
