The candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the Osun state Gubernatorial election, Senator Ademola Adeleke has decried the violence that marred Monday’s rerun election in the state and rejected the exercise.
In a statement by the Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organization made available to Daily Trust by the spokesman Malam Rasheed Olawale, his media aide, Adeleke accused the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies of bias.
According to him, “We report to the whole world the brazen theft and daylight swindling of Osun people who were criminally denied their rights to vote and be voted for by an anti-people conspiracy among INEC, Security agencies and the ruling All Progressive Congress.”
“An unprecdeneted travesty of justice and shattering democractic values are ongoing in Osun state.”
“The whole world is witnessing a charade in the name of election,a deliberate effort at imposition of a discredited leadership on the suffering people of Osun state through undisguised brutal force.
“Applying all standards , today’s supplementary poll is a non-event as all norms of electoral process are violated.”
“Voters are deliberately refused access to polling points at gun points. ”
“Those allowed to voting centers are forced to vote for APC. PDP party agents are arrested , beaten up and shut out of polling centres. PDP agents are barred from many units. Roads are blocked to stop voters and observers.”
