PDP, APC in war of words over alleged plot to rig Ondo governorship election

12 October 2016, 11:10

Akure - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State on Tuesday traded words on an alleged plot to rig the November 26 governorship election in the state.

The PDP in a statement alleged that the APC is sowing illegal Army uniforms for thugs.

Signed by Director of Publicity Ayo Fadaka, the statement also alleged that APC and another opposition party were collecting voter cards.

According to Fadaka, the aim of the opposition party is to intimidate voters so as to rig on election day.

"The opposition parties have engaged garment makers to make available Army uniforms of different sizes for thugs.

"The tailors handling the sewing were working from two neighbouring states.

”Members of one of the parties participating in the November 26 governorship election have stockpiled arms in a location within the state”, he said.

But the APC in a counter statement said the PDP accusation was laughable.

The APC in  a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, accused the PDP of planning to rig the election.

He alleged that PDP was recruiting and training snipers ahead of the poll.
