The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to court over the declaration of the Osun state gubernatorial election (INEC) as inconclusive.
We demand that INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu immediately summon the courage to do the needful by declaring our candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, as winner. It is completely ludicrous, that INEC and the APC are now attempting to divert the narrative from the substance of the election by making outlandish allegations against the PDP and lobbying Civil Society Organizations and Electoral Observers to validate their illegality. Moreover, even if the Osun governorship election is conducted over and over again, the PDP will still win as the people of the state have chosen the PDP and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke. Nevertheless, we insist that the September 22, 2018 election, under our laws, is conclusive and our candidate must be declared winner.
The just concluded Osun governorship election seems to be early warning signals to the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2019 general elections as many of the party members took to social media to express their concerns in the party’s outing at the election, with emphasis on its implications snon the forthcoming general elections in 2019.
