- PDP members in Ondo have been warned not to cause trouble in the state
- Governor Akeredolu who gave the warning slammed the party for its primary
- Going further, the governor said he would not hesitate to use the law to protect the citizens
As the state governorship election draws near, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has warned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against further use of alleged violence and thuggery after a part of the venue for the party's primary was destroyed.
The governor blasted the party over violence and thuggery recorded in the primary.
Going further, he warned the PDP against the deployment of violence and thuggery because he would not hesitate to deploy the full weight of the law to protect the citizens.
He disclosed this through his commissioner for information and orientation, Donald Ojogo.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that APC's female governorship aspirant in the Ondo governorship election, Jumoke Ajasin-Afowonishe, has rejected the party's gubernatorial primary results.
According to The Nation, Anifowoshe said the process leading to the emergence of Governor Akeredolu as the party’s candidate was flawed.
The only female governorship aspirant scored only two votes while Akeredolu secured the party's ticket with a wide margin of 2,458 votes.
Anifowoshe in a statement by the director-general of her campaign organisation, Hon. Kayode Arigbede, issued on Saturday, July 25, in Akure, said the whole primary was manipulated from the beginning to the end.
The aspirant who came second behind Governor Akeredolu at the primary of the APC in Ondo state made the allegation after a meeting with members of his campaign organisation.
Oke urged the Ondo state governor to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party. He said he and his supporters are ready to participate in any reconciliation efforts genuinely undertaken by the leadership of the party.
He noted that the APC needs to be united to record a landslide victory against the PDP in the Ondo governorship election.
The aspirant said he expects all reconciliation efforts to be agreed on within the next seven days.
He disclosed that his support base would not do anything to harm the interest of the party in the coming election unless it is unavoidable.
