According to Oke, “the ongoing primary election defies all descriptions of decency and democratic conduct.”

He alleged that, the Usman Ododo-led primary election committee, constituted to conduct the nomination exercise, "...took a late “stroll” out of their hotel rooms, where they were dining and winning.”

Even more, Oke stated that the primary election materials were not distributed to the 203 Wards across the state, contrary to what was promised by the committee.

To crown it all, the aspirant claimed that no primary election was conducted by the APC in Ondo; instead what happened was "shameful, and it constituted a serious dent in the image of our dear party."

However, the spokesman in the statement appealed to supporters across the 18 local government areas of the state to remain peaceful and calm, while awaiting briefing from members across the state and his principal.
