Ilorin - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara, has accused Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of violating the electoral act by campaigning before the stipulated time.
Rex Olawoye, the state Publicity Secretary of the party, made the accusation on Sunday in Ilorin.
He said that Ahmed, his aides and the APC had been going around the state campaigning for second term for the governor under the cover of town hall meeting.
He noted that section 99 (1-3) of the electoral act stipulated that public campaign by political parties shall commence 90 days before the day of the election.
He called on INEC and the Police to sanction both the governor and the APC for violating the Electoral Act.
Olawoye claimed the campaigns would confer unfair advantage on the APC over and above other political parties.
The PDP spokesman also accused the APC and Governor Ahmed of using public funds to campaign for his second term bid.
He expressed concern why the governor suddenly decided to hold town hall meetings seven months to the expiration of his first tenure.
Olawoye suggested that town hall meetings should be converted to avenues where the people are sensitised on the dangers of the dreaded Ebola virus and precautionary measures to take.
He warned that if INEC refused to act, the commission would lose the moral authority to prevent other parties from taking laws into their hands.
