Ondo APC primary: Ododo wrote results, election didn’t hold – Akinterinwa


An All Progressives Congress, APC, Ondo governorship aspirant, Wale Akinterinwa, has accused Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State and Chairman of the party’s primary election committee of writing results.

He said the party did not conduct any primary election in all the 203 Wards of the state.

Ododo had announced the state governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, as the governorship candidate of the party after polling the highest votes at the primary election.

However, 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.”
