PDP Accuses Gov Amosun Of Buying 400,000 PVCs

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state has accused the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, of purchasing some unclaimed Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) ahead of the gubernatorial poll in the state. 

The PDP in a statement issued by Ifekayode Akinbode, the director of media and publicity of Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka's campaign organisation, claimed that it was a plot to rig the coming election in the state.

In a swift reaction, Amosun described the allegation as outlandish and malicious, and aimed at misleading the people of the state.

The deputy director-general of Senator Ibikunle Amosun's campaign organisation, Chief Bisi Adegbuyi, who spoke on behalf of the governor, challenged the PDP to prove the allegation beyond reasonable doubt.

PDP said: ”It has come to our notice that the Ogun State governor,  Sen. Ibikunle Amosun has purchased many of the uncollected PVCs for underhand use of the APC. While, Ogun INEC said about 400,000 cards remain uncollected, many of these cards are now in the possession of Amosun.”

Segun Adesegun, the Ogun state deputy governor, has revealed that he regrets ever working with Governor Ibikunle Amosun. Adesegun left the All Progressives Congress alongside some federal and state lawmakers for the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
