Group alleges moves to manipulate Ondo APC guber primaries

A group within the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ondo Vanguard for Good Governance, has frowned against the move by the party not to hold delegates’ congress ahead of Saturday’s governorship primaries of the party.

According to the group, the committee, saddled with the responsibility of revalidating the membership of the party in the state, was allegedly preparing the grounds for the manipulation of the exercise.

The group emphasised that the committee members were visibly absent from the venues of the congress in the state, claiming that figures were allocated to create the illusion that the delegates’ congress was held.

Chairman of the Ondo Vanguard for Good Governance, Tade Ogidan, emphasised the need for urgent intervention from President Bola Tinubu and the national leadership of the APC to avert a potential crisis for the party in the state.

Ogidan said: “The members of the Committee were not only absent at the venues of the Congress across the state; they arbitrarily allocated figures in their hideout.

“The committee members across the state employed two different sets of result sheets, one by the local government Congress Committee and another by the state Congress Committee. The parlous execution of this sensitive and sacrosanct exercise further manifested itself in the refusal to appoint or use designated ward election officers, among others.”

Reacting to the allegations, the Director of Information, Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation Foot Soldiers (LACO-FS), Kayode Fasua, said: “The process for the conduct of the primary election in the state was laid bare by the party. If there are areas needing clarification, they should approach the party. As for us, we are, in good conscience, prepared for the primary election.”
