APC Primary: Akinterinwa Cries Out, Says Election Didn’t Hol In Ondo


One of the aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ondo State governorship election, Wale Akinterinwa has accused the Chairman election committee, Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State of writing results rather than conducting a credible election.

Speaking in a statement made available to New Telegraph on Monday, Akinterinwa alleged that the party did not conduct any primary election in all the 203 Wards of the state.

It would be recalled that Ododo had announced Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the Governorship candidate of the party after polling the highest votes at the primary election.

Reacting to the announcement, Akinterinwa described the APC’s primary election in the state as a show of shame.

The aspirant’s stance was contained in a statement signed by his campaign organisation spokesperson, Mr Segun Ajiboye.

According to the statement: “Without any fear of contradiction, we state here that no election was held in any part of Ondo on Saturday to elect the candidate of the APC.

“It is on record with incontrovertible evidence that nothing in the semblance of a primary election was held in all the 203 wards in Ondo.

“At best, what can be said to have happened was that the committee chairman, Gov. Ododo, arrived in the state at about 8 am on Saturday to write the result of an election that was never conducted.

“Saturday’s election presented our dear party with a rare opportunity to endear itself to the people of the state.

“All that was needed was for us to organise an election that would be hailed by all, even the opposition.”
