The candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the Osun state Gubernatorial election, Senator Ademola Adeleke has decried the violence that marred Monday’s rerun election in the state and rejected the exercise.
In a statement by the Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organization made available to Daily Trust by the spokesman Malam Rasheed Olawale, his media aide, Adeleke accused the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies of bias.
“An unprecdeneted travesty of justice and shattering democractic values are ongoing in Osun state.”
“Applying all standards , today’s supplementary poll is a non-event as all norms of electoral process are violated.”
“Voters are deliberately refused access to polling points at gun points. ”
“Those allowed to voting centers are forced to vote for APC. PDP party agents are arrested , beaten up and shut out of polling centres. PDP agents are barred from many units. Roads are blocked to stop voters and observers.”
“Journalists and election monitors are blocked from accessing many voting areas. Those who attempted gaining access are attacked by hooded thugs. PDP leaders are hounded and arrested. It was a brutal unleashing of force against unarmed election stakeholders.”
“We report to the whole world that in Osun today no supplementary poll took place. It was all violence and and undisguised breaching of all electoral rules . The APC is pushing violently to steal people’s mandate freely given by the oppressed people of Osun state.”
“We condemn this charade; We reject this violent operations called election. We dissociate ourselves from this brazen shame and sham election”
“We stand on the mandate freely given to Ademola Adeleke. We will uphold the people’s mandate through all legal means. We will not succumb to fascist agents hell bent on plunging the state into chaos.”
“We call on the international community to monitor happenings in Osun state. A major political tragedy is underway with huge consequence for the nation.”
