The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will challenge the result of the Ondo governorship elections at the tribunal. The November 26 election was won by All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu. The PDP disclosed its decision to contest
the election results via a statement issued by spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye on Monday, November
28. INEC has however graduated from inconclusive
elections as seen in Kogi, Bayelsa, Osun, FCT, Imo, Nassarawa and some other previous by-elections in the country to ‘Advanced Election Rigging’ as in the case of Edo and Ondo states gubernatorial elections. It is common knowledge that the APC agents openly bought votes of the electorates in the full glare of security operatives who did nothing to prevent such dastardly violation of the electoral law. It is not surprising that the electorates
in Ondo State became so vulnerable to the corruptive influence of the APC because of the harsh economic situation in the country inflicted on Nigerians by the APC administration, which has indeed made all Nigerians virtually beggars in their own country.
