Olisa-Metuh

RECENT headlines shows All progressive congress, APC, faulting PDP and alleging them of planning to rig elections in Osun state . The Peoples Democratic Party has dismissed allegations by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, of plots to rig Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State as an “infantile blackmail”, unbecoming of his office and status.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on
Thursday in Abuja said the allegations were completely wild,
baseless and mere fabrication aimed at distracting PDP members
and supporters and discourage them from fully participating in the
election.

It said the allegation was a ploy by the APC to make its members
and supporters over-confident and divert attention to their own
sinister plan.

Stating that there would be no room for rigging, the PDP said “the
process of accreditation, voting, counting of votes and declaration
of results would be openly observed by the print, electronic and
social media as well as local and international observers.”
The PDP said one of the legacies of President Goodluck
Jonathan’s administration was free, fair and credible polls, adding
that “such will in no way be compromised in Osun or any other
elections for that matter.”

The party called on its members and supporters to disregard the
APC and turn out enmasse to vote for its candidate, Senator Iyiola
Omisore, stressing that it remained focused on the election, having
worked very hard to earn the confidence and support of the people
of Osun State.
