Osun election: How APC robbed PDP, Adeleke – ADC

Ademola Adeleke
The African Democratic Congress, ADC, said the outcome of the Osun State governorship re-run election was a clear indication that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and President Muhammadu Buhari, have disdain for democratic tenets.

The party described the rerun election as a sham.

The ADC said this in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Yemi Kolapo, on Saturday.

The party said, “It is now clear that the failed All Progressives Congress government will stop at nothing to subvert the people’s will.

“At the main elections a week ago, the people of Osun had delivered a most damning verdict on the Rauf Aregbesola-led APC but the APC has exposed its own disdain for democratic tenets by its shameful conduct at Thursday’s rerun.

“The most tragic aspect of the entire charade was the odious role played by the police in sabotaging the entire process, with its conspiracy with the APC to prevent opposition supporters from voting.

“The same policemen engaged in indiscriminate arrests of election observers and journalists duly accredited to cover the polls.

“There were ‘parades’ by policemen on the streets of Oshogbo who fired gunshots sporadically to scare voters.

“Even the Independent National Electoral Commission has distanced itself from the conduct of the police.

“If the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria could come out to congratulate a winner in this kind of election, then his integrity is seriously at stake.

“While we reject the outcome of the Osun fiasco in its entirety, we urge all Nigerians to stand firm and ensure that this does not happen again.”
