Osun gov rerun: You are free to withdraw, it is never too late, APC tells PDP

Osun gov rerun: You are free to withdraw, it is never too late, APC tells PDP

The All Progressives Campaign Council for the Osun
Governorship Election has urged the party’s members in the areas where
the state’s election rerun will be held on Thursday to ignore the
alleged rantings of the PDP and turn out en masse to vote for the ruling

In a statement in Abuja by the Chairman of the Council’s Media
Committee, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Council said the threat by the PDP
to challenge, in court, the Independent National Electoral Commission’s
declaration of last Saturday’s election as inconclusive was nothing but
sheer bravado.

He said the PDP was merely afraid of losing the rerun.

Mohammed, who is also the minister of Information, said the PDP may
also have contrived the court threat as a way of distracting the APC and
its members ahead of the rerun, calling that distraction strategy dead
on arrival.

He said, ”The PDP knows that the so-called court challenge which it
has threatened to mount will not fly, especially because the highest
court in the land has already pronounced on the issue of whether or not
INEC has the powers to declare an election inconclusive.

”The PDP is not unaware of the pronouncement of the Supreme Court in
the case of James Abiodun Faleke Vs INEC and others, that  INEC has the
duty of conducting elections and that, besides the constitutional

provisions, it is guided by the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) and the
Election Guidelines and Manual issued for its officials in accordance
with the Act.”

He said that since the PDP had boasted that its candidate will win if
the Osun Governorship Election is conducted over and over again, the
party should stop being jittery and put its money where its mouth is by willingly participating in the rerun.
