Ondo LG Poll: PDP describes LG election as a charade, says was right for boycotting

By Maria Ifafesobi
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State has described the ongoing local government election conducted by the Ondo State Independent Electoral mission (ODIEC)  as a mere charade, saying that the election was poorly conducted and that the party had made a good decision of boycotting the election earlier.
This reaction was made known through a statement issued by the Party’s State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kennedy Peretei in Akure.
The statement reads, “Twenty- four hours before the election, APC thugs unleashed violence on opposition parties in Ondo town, Idanre and Owo that attempted to participate in the election.
“In thousands of polling units, neither voting materials nor ODIEC personnel was seen at about noon on election day and where they were seen, ballot papers were in short supply.
“We have been vindicated by all the actions of ODIEC and its Pay Masters as incapable of conducting free and fair elections. They should go ahead and announce the Election results as previously compiled in all the Wards and Local Government Areas.
“ODIEC has not only failed the people of Ondo State. It should be disbanded as a matter of urgency because their outing is not only a sham but shameful”.
