Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 5, 2016
One of the aspirants, who participated in Saturday’s governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke, has kicked against the outcome, alleging that names of hundreds of non-delegates was smuggled into the delegates’ list.
A former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu, won the primary held on Saturday in Akure, the state capital, defeating twenty-three other aspirants of the party.
Speaking through his Director-General of his campaign, Mr. Bola Fisayo, on Sunday, Oke however said the election is not a true reflection of the delegates that participated in the primary last Saturday. He specifically alleged that some names of the delegates were removed from the delegates’ list while non-delegates were allegedly allowed to vote.
However, two aspirants, Dr. Segun Abraham and Mr. Victor Olabimtan, hailed the conduct of the exercise, saying the election was free and fair. They congratulated Akeredolu and pledged to support his governorship bid.
