The All Progressives Campaign Council for the Osun Governorship Election has urged the party’s members in the areas where the state’s election rerun will be held on Thursday to ignore the alleged rantings of the PDP and turn out en mass to vote for the ruling party.
In a statement in Abuja by the Chairman of the Council’s Media Committee, Lai Mohammed, the Council said the threat by the PDP to challenge, in court, INEC’s declaration of last Saturday’s election as inconclusive, was nothing but sheer bravado, further alleging that the PDP was merely afraid of losing the rerun.
Mohammed, who is also the minister of Information, said the PDP may also have contrived the court threat as a way of distracting the APC and its members ahead of the rerun, calling the alleged distraction strategy dead on arrival.
MEANWHILE – A former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has called on INEC to declare the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Ademola Adeleke, as winner of the governorship election held on Saturday, arguing that neither INEC nor any political party had the right to subvert the constitution and the peace of the state.
