The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the rerun election held in Osun State as the greatest appointive burglary at any point saw ever in the state.

The Chairman of the PDP in Osun State, Mr Soji Adagunodo, said this in an statement made available to OkayNG.com in Osogbo on Thursday.

Adagunodo said the supposed shameless appointive extortion would be opposed by the party, saying the stolen mandate would be opposed in court.

He said the decision was transparently fixed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) with the help of security agencies without trying to hide.

I his words:

“Thousands of eligible voters were chased away from their homes in Orolu, Ife North and Ife South Local Government Areas in the early hours of today.

“Scores of our supporters in those local governments were shot and stabbed on their way to polling centres and in the full glare of security men. Hundreds of people holding PVCs from other polling units were accredited and allowed to vote in Osogbo and Ife South Local Governments.

“PDP agent in Olode was axed and abducted at 7am today. Media men and election observers were denied access in several polling units. By the time access was granted to journalists about 11am, ballot boxes had been stuffed by APC agents acting in connivance with INEC officials.”

The chairman stated that it was regrettable that election in seven polling units could not be freely and fairly conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He also said. “We reject any returns of results from this sham and call on the INEC authorities in Abuja to direct that the so-called supplementary election result collation be put on hold now.

We equally invite leaders of thought in Nigeria and the International community to rise up now to rescue Nigeria’s democracy from being ruined.

“We equally call on all members and supporters of our party to resist any attempt to foist concocted election results on the people of Osun using all legal means at their disposal.”

OkayNG.com recalls that INEC declared Osun Governorship Election inconclusive on Sunday and Rescheduled a Rerun for Today.
