Osun 2018: PDP Aspirants insist primary election marred with irregularities, call for redress

Post by Kingseyi on Thu Jul 26, 2018 6:25 pm

Seven aspirants of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, in Osun state in Saturday’s
governorship primary of the party have faulted
the processes that led to the emergence of
Senator Ademola Adeleke.
The aspirants, including the second runner off,
Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, Professor Adeolu Durotoye,
among others in a press conference in Osogbo,
unanimously demanded that the National
Leadership of the party should rescind it’s
decision on the nomination of Senator Ademola
Adeleke as flag bearer of the party.
They accused the leadership of the party of
carrying on with outright impunity unabatedly,
contrary to the earlier promise to change the old
pattern of operation the party is known for.
The group whose press statement was read by
Senator Akinlabi argued that the figure of 1562
votes allotted by the 5-man electoral panel to Dr
Akin Ogunbiyi, was wrong, saying the actual
figure was 1690.
“Contrary to the promise made by the new
leadership of our party, the reign of impunity
appears to have continued unabated with the
way and manner the primary election in Osun
State was conducted.
“The exercise was regrettably marred by gross
violations of that Electoral Guidelines issued by
the National Working Committee as well as
outright manipulation of the results of the
election in favour of Senator Nurudeen Ademola
Adeleke in a manner suggesting that he was the
favoured candidate of some powerful individuals
in the top echelon of the PDP.
“We make bold to say that Senator Adeleke did
not in fact score the highest number of votes in
that primary election, having polled a total
number of 1569 as against his major opponent,
Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, whose actual votes at the
point of sorting was 1690”, they resorted.
In his remarks, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi expressed
hope that his mandate would surely be
reclaimed.
Ogunbiyi who said that only party that can
restore the hope of the people of Osun is PDP,
said he would not leave the party.
He said: “We are not leaving the party under any
guise, we believe in the leadership of the party,
we will together fight this cause to uproot the
bad government of APC in the state.
“Let me say emphatically that the only party that
can restore the hope of the people of Osun is
PDP”.
