We’re uncovering your electoral frauds – Ogun PDP to APC

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State has said the party is currently uncovering the electoral frauds allegedly perpetrated by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the State.

The PDP said it has got the permission of the election petition tribunal in the State to inspect all electoral materials used during the March 18 polls.

In a statement by the PDP Publicity Secretary in Ogun, Akinloye Bankole, the party accused the ruling APC of plots “to cover its track after its failed attempt to subvert the popular wish of the electorates in connivance with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The opposition party said members of the APC have since March 18 been junketing from one corner of the country to another, “searching desperately for means of covering all the electoral frauds they perpetrated.”

Bankole told DAILY POST that the permission granted the PDP by the election tribunal to inspect electoral materials “is already making the APC jittery.”

“Many of their electoral frauds in the March 18 election are about to be uncovered,” he stressed.

Akinloye spoke further that, “In another few days, details of all electoral frauds of the APC will be collated and the same shall be made available to necessary authorities, including the public domain for review.”

The party enjoined Ogun people to remain calm, saying “no form of tyranny would stand in front of a determined people.”

Meanwhile, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Ogun, Tunde Oladunjoye, has asked the INEC to provide enough security for all the election materials used in the governorship election so as to protect them from the governorship candidate of the PDP, Oladipupo Adebutu and his party.

“Having lost the election and failed to get to office via purchase, the PDP and its candidate lacked the moral rectitude to make allegations of electoral impropriety against anybody or INEC,” the APC spokesman said.
