For conducting a 'peace governorship election' in Ondo state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies.
This commendation was given by Comrade Mustapha Saliu, Secretary of the APC’s National Campaign Council for Ondo 2020.
According to The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Sali, described INEC performance as wonderful and encouraging.
“INEC did wonderfully well. You can see that materials arrived many polling units as early as 7.00 a.m.; even in the riverine area.
“I want to sincerely appreciate security agents, especially the Police, Army and Navy. They are professional in this election. I saw the commitment they put, even under the rain, they were there to ensure safety,."
Going further, he described allegations that APC used money to buy its votes as a "flimsy excuse coming from a particular political party’’.
“I think it is irresponsible and petty for any political party to say that."
Legit.ng also reported that Dr. Kayode Ajulo, a constitutional lawyer says all major parties in the just concluded Ondo state governorship election are guilty of vote-buying.
Ajulo who is also a former general secretary of the Labour Party (LP), disclosed this in a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, October 11.
According to him, the major political parties were all involved in influencing voters for the election, using money.
Meanwhile, the party APC said it welcomed federal government’s decision to disband the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) and the reform of the Nigeria Police Force.
The party said this in a statement issued by Yekini Nabena, its deputy national publicity secretary.
It said it viewed the responsive decision as a major and concrete step toward President Muhammadu Buhari’s affirmed resolve to achieve better policing and necessary reforms.
