This statement is coming after a fire incident occurred at tge Ondo State INEC headquarters, destroying 5000 and above card readers, few days to the governorship election.
Spokesman for The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, told a journalist on Sunday at Abuja that information got to them claiming that the All Progressive Congress is behind the fire incident. He also called upon the security agencies to invite Governor Akeredolu, Kekemeke and other APC leaders in Ondo state for questioning and possible extraction of undertaking from them ahead of the election.
“It is clear that the APC has been in extreme fear over the soaring popularity of the PDP governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, across the state, for which the APC has resorted to violence and underhand tactics, particularly after realizing that there is no way its candidate, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, who has failed the people can win in a transparent, free and fair election on October 10.
“Our party invites Nigerians to note that the attack on the Ondo INEC office came after, self-confessed APC militant in the state, Isaac Kekemeke, boasted that the APC will use violence to rig the October 10 election and that Governor Akeredolu was behind the violent political attacks rocking the state.
“It is therefore not by happenstance that the fire occurred in no other place than the facility where sensitive materials, such as card readers were stored, leading to the destruction of not less than 5,141 card readers meant for the election were destroyed.
“Our party restates our call on the security agencies to check the violence proclivities of the APC by immediately inviting Governor Akeredolu, Kekemeke and other APC leaders in Ondo state for questioning and possible extraction of undertaking from them ahead of the election.”
