Politics OSUN 2014: 'We are Going to Prevent What Happened in Ekiti'-APC



The All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to ensure that the Osun gubernatorial election slated for August 9 does not end up like the recently concluded governorship election in Ekiti state were the party lost to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Addressing newsmen after a meeting of the party's leaders at Government House, Osogbo in Osun state, Mr Segun Oni, a former governor of Ekiti, who defected from the PDP to the APC shortly before the Ekiti June 21 governorship poll said the party(APC) would do everything possible to ensure that Osun election was credible, free and fair.

It would be recalled that Mr Ayo Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defeated Fayemi, the incumbent governor in the June 21 poll.

"We are going to prevent what happened in Ekiti. What we have seen in Ekiti is a new dimension to voting; it is a new dimension to election rigging. Congratulatory message from the party to the PDP does not mean we cannot exercise our right.

"Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti said if the election was the will of the people and did not say it was the people's will. We have since discovered that the election was actually not the will of the people. Fayemi's position has always been in tandem with that of the party,’’ Oni said.

Also, Chris Ngige, APC chieftain and former governor of Anambra state said the meeting was centred on how to ensure that peace prevail before, during and after the election.

The meeting was attended by Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun, Sen. Babafemi Ojudu and Sen. Sola Adeyeye, among others.
