OBOKUN/ORIADE PDP LEADERS TASK INEC OFFICIAL’S TO BE VIGILANT
CHARGE INEC TO MOVE USED/UNUSED MATERIALS TO HEADQUARTERS
Apparently worried by the spate of desperation of the All Progressives Party (APC) stalwarts to upturn the mandates given to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly Elections, Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Obokun/ Oriade Federal Constituency of Osun State have warned the Electoral Officers in the two local governments that made up the constituency not to tamper with the ballot papers and other electoral materials used in the on going general elections.
A release signed by PDP Leaders in the Constituency, Prince Diran Odeyemi, Barr. Ayodeji Areola and Hon. Mayowa Adejorin enjoined the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) officials to ensure that the electoral materials that are presently in their custody are moved to the State Headquarters to forestall any presumed manipulation.
The PDP Leaders particularly stated that both the used and unused ballots papers should be promptly moved to the State Headquarters of the INEC forthwith.
The release enthused that the All Progressive (APC) members are desperate to look for any window of electoral fraud and manipulation to upturn the mandates given to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates by the Osun people.
The PDP chieftains warned the INEC officials to be cautious and conscious of any nefarious act that may affect the success recorded in the election.
They threatened that any official suspected of perpetrating or collaborating to tamper with the electoral materials would be made to face the wrath of infidelity and criminality in the service.
They however called on the State Resident Electoral Commissioner to call the officials to order to submit all the electoral officials in their domains to the strong- room at the State Headquarters without further delay.
