Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the request by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State as “bizarre.”
The APC in statement on Sunday urged INEC to ignore the PDP’s bizarre request and concentrate on delivering a free, fair, credible and transparent ballot on election day.
The statement was signed by the party's National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni.
The statement read: “The PDP crisis and the aftermath governorship candidate tussle within its ranks are self-inflicted and the PDP cannot hold Ondo state and indeed the country hostage on account of its internal crisis
“Instead of making the ridiculous election postponement request on INEC, the PDP should focus and redirect its energy towards putting its house in order.”
“The PDP in continuation of its wild conspiracies on the Ondo Governorship Election has also accused the APC of colluding with the judicial system, INEC and security agencies to “manipulate” the outcome of the Ondo State governorship election.
