The Ondo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Edo gubernatorial election was marred by electoral fraud.
Reacting to Saturday’s election, the publicity secretary of the party in the state, Alex Kalejaiye, said PDP should not be hopeful of winning next month’s gubernatorial election in the state as Ondo is not Edo state.
“The APC in Edo State is full of hope that the denials at the election would be redressed in court.
“The Ondo State chapter is full of confidence that the good works of the Akeredolu led administration would speak in volumes during the election in October.
“We are confident of victory, and the opposition parties are not unaware of the degree of popularity of the ruling party” he said.
In his reaction, Candidate of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede, urges electorates to emulate Edo electorate and take their destiny in their hands.
“What has taken place in Edo thus beckons on our good people of Ondo State, to bear their destiny in their hands, by similarly rejecting these feudal lords posing as democratic leaders, and elect the PDP in the October 10 governorship election.
“Our people should, in unison, make their choice known through the coming election, that they choose good governance and reject bad leadership” he said.
