Powerful Interest, INEC Rob Us of Victory in Ondo Guber Election – PDP

The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has rejected the results as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Sunday morning, that gave victory in the Saturdays governorship election in the state to All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu.
The Publicity Director of the party in the state, Ayodele Fadeke, disclosed this while reacting to the results on Sunday.
He said INEC in collaboration with some powerful persons in the country robbed the party of victory in the election.
“In spite of the national orientation of the Federal Government, buying voters is the highest form of corruption that this government portends to be fighting day in day out and we see that corruption is getting entrenched by the day more and more.
“The PDP failed this election simply because INEC and some other interest groups decided it will fail”, he said.
He alleged that the processes that led to the election amounted to rigging, saying INEC need not hold the election when it knew that the name of the PDP candidate was unjustifiably removed from the list of candidates.
According to him, INEC had up till January to hold the election, and should have postponed it, but chose to go ahead with it because it planned to ensure the PDP failed in the election.
“I will say that powerful interest in this country, working hand in gloves with INEC decided to do us in this election, they decided and desired and they have achieved their aim to hand over our party to APC,” he said.
Fadeke refused to be boxed into accepting or outrightly rejecting the results when he said, “My answer is neither here nor there,” stressing that the election came hastily despite the travails of the party in court.
“There is no democracy in this game, there is no fairness and there is no equity in what we have see and what has just happened here,” he said.
