Ondo: PDP govs raise alarm, say APC plot rig election


ABUJA – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum Monday raised alarm over plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) with the help of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig Ondo state governorship election.
In a statement in Abuja today, the secretary of the Forum, Patrick Okon said that INEC should be overhauled. According to the Forum, the APC is bent on getting Ondo state by all means and has listed the assistance of INEC to execute its plan. “We are aware of the plan of APC to get Ondo state by all means, including listing the assistance of INEC. “We are warning that we will not fold our arms to watch this impunity and day time robbery. INEC is an umpire and should play its role very well so that the electorates will have confidence in it. “From the way things are going, the people are already losing confidence in the commission. INEC should stick to its electoral mandate and should not subvert the law of the land. “INEC should conduct itself very well in this forthcoming Ondo state governorship election to avoid a repeat of what happen in Edo election. “We call on Mr. President to caution his party, APC and INEC to be fair in this coming election schedule for November 26” the statement added.
