2019: ADC Reveals APC’s Plan To Rig Elections In Ogun
The African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship candidate in Ogun State, Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka (GNI) has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) of creating hostilities which could make the state unfit for peaceful campaigns ahead of the forthcoming polls.
GNI spoke through the Director General of the Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka Campaign Organization, Anthony Ojeshina on Saturday in Abeokuta.
The DG alleged killing of ADC members at a rally in Abeokuta, as well as defacing and carting away of the gubernatorial candidate’s billboards and A-boards, a development which according to him, was meant to truncate the democratic process in the state.
Ojeshina said suspected agents of APC and APM few days back destroyed the billboards and dumped them in a deep canal in Abeokuta metropolis. He vowed to resist recurrence of such “nefarious, antisocial and shameful acts.”
“From the foregoing, we see a sustained orgy of violence that are proving fatal at each turn. We also observe, having in hindsight the reliable information at our disposal that there are certain opposition parties that are deliberately triggering this crisis towards making Ogun state a theatre of war such that peaceful campaigns will be impossible and unfit to have elections here.
"They also intend to precipitate a possible declaration of ‘State of Emergency’ in the process; thereby truncating the democratic process in our state,” the DG said.
When contacted, the DG of APM Campaign Council, Sarafa Ishola declined comments on the allegations.
But the Publicity Secretary of APC Caretaker Committee, Tunde Oladunjoye in a statement distanced the party from the allegations, saying ”APC and its candidates are running a decent, non-violent and issue-based campaign, devoid of violence and hate speeches.”
He asked ADC candidate to “be courageous enough to name the persons and party and not lump APC together with the culprits.”
