People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has described last Saturday’s local government election in Ondo state as a mere waste of resources and called on security agencies to investigate various threats of violence ahead of October 10 governorship election in the state.
Speaking with newsmen in Akure, the new State Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Fatai Adams said it was worrisome security agents were yet to arrest any of those threatening to use political thugs to rig the governorship election as well as those destroying campaign billboards and posters of the party’s candidate, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede.
Alhaji Adams said PDP boycotted the local government election because it viewed it as a charade and it would not reflect the wishes of the electorates.
He enjoined stakeholders in the forthcoming governorship election, including Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and APC to join his party to ensure free and fair polls.
The PDP Chairman condemned unguarded comments credited to a former APC Chairman, Isaacs Kekemeke in a viral video, adding that the opposition party had written a petition to all security agencies to probe the video.
However, Mr. Kekemeke had issued an open letter to apologise over his comment in the viral video, describing such as a pep talk.
