Ondo Election: APC has brought pain and suffering upon the people and it is time for them to go – Gov. Makinde

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Gubernatorial National Campaign Council for Ondo State, who is also the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has vowed that the party would prevent the All Progressives Congress from using violence to truncate the will of the people in the election.

Makinde, stated this on Sunday shortly after a meeting with the Assistant Inspector General of Police and the Commissioner of Police in charge of the State, accused the ruling APC in Ondo State of masterminding electoral violence to subvert the will of the voters.

He appealed to the people of the state not to allow the violence being unleashed by the APC to affect their resolve to vote for the standard-bearer of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), urging them to send the APC and their representatives out of the Alagbaka Government House on Saturday.

The governor also called on security agencies in the state to step up the efforts to prevent the APC, which he accused of being desperate to retain Ondo State, from perpetrating further violence ahead of the poll.

According to Makinde, “while the PDP and its candidate had been working hard to convince the electorate by running issue-based campaigns and pointing out how the APC’s candidate, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has brought untold hardship upon the people, the ruling party has been busy unleashing violence on PDP members”.

He added that the ruling party has shown desperation to retain the state despite failing the people.

He promised that the PDP would not sit idly and watch the APC subvert the will of the people or harass the electorate as it is prepared to use all legitimate means to ensure that the will of the people to have Jegede as their next governor is not subverted.

Makinde said: “We have been working hard in support of our candidate and our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party, for the past months, and it all comes down to one day: October 10, 2020.

“The PDP as a party and our candidate, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), have run an issue-based campaign.

“The issues are clear: The APC-led administration has brought their characteristic pain and suffering upon the people of Ondo State.

“And the people have decided it is time for them to go.
