The Peoples Democratic Party has raised the alarm of alleged desperate moves by the All Progressives Congress to hijack the collation of results in the Osun State governorship election, “following their realization that they have lost at the polling units”.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that “APC thugs, aided by security agencies, are stirring violence in Ila, Boripe Local Government Area, where they are attacking collation center, manhandling and chasing out agents of our party, in a bid to disrupt the collation of results and alter the figures, having realized that their party has lost at the polling units”.
It added: “The PDP also has information that the APC unleashed similar violent mission in Ikire, Oriade Local Government. Our party also has report that the APC thugs are mobilizing to Ede to disrupt collation of results.
“The PDP states in unequivocal terms that our members and the people of Osun state remain at alert and will never allow the APC to have its way.
“The PDP, in very strong terms, cautions the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to allow any body, including its staff, to in any way, alter results polled and already declared at the polling units as such is capable of attracting dire consequences for the perpetrators.”
