Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party 2018 governorship election in Osun State, had rejected today’s re-run election as a “charade” which must not be allowed to stand.
Mr Adeleke’s position, disclosed in a statement by his campaign office Thursday afternoon, was hinged on the widespread reports of voter intimidation and other forms of violence which marred the re-run election, especially in Orolu Local Government Area.
“The whole world is witnessing a charade in the name of election, a deliberate effort at imposition of a discredited leadership on the suffering people of Osun State through undisguised brutal force,” the campaign said. “Applying all standards, today’s supplementary poll is a non-event as all norms of electoral process are violated.”
There have been reports that the re-run election has neither been free nor fair since polls opened across the four local government areas identified for the exercise after the main process on Saturday was declare inconclusive.
Amongst those who have reported violence from security agencies and suspected APC thugs are journalists, observers and voters believed loyal to the PDP.
