Segun Abraham, Tinubu's candidate, makes u-turn, rejects APC primary result | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Mr. Segun Abraham, who was touted as the favorite candidate of the APC leader Bola Tinubu, has taken a u-turn and rejected the outcome of the party's primary election.

The APC primary held last weekend to elect a gubernatorial candidate for the Ondo State polls, was won by Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN).

Abraham's rejection is coming barely two days after another aspirant, who came third in the contest, Chief Olusola Oke rejected the result.

Abraham, through the Director General of the O’Abraham Campaign Organisation, Prince Olu Adegboro, in a volte-face described the election as nothing but a fraud.

Abraham in his statement titled ‘That Our Democracy May Endure’, signed on his behalf by Adegboro, stated that the outcome of the election is “unacceptable”, considering the plethora of staggering facts of anomalies that had since emerged to the demerit of the exercise.

The reads in part: “It is no longer news that as a true democrat, imbued with the best spirit of sportmanship, I congratulated Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, who purportedly emerged as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the September 3rd Gubernatorial Primary election in Ondo State in the face of palpable disbelief and surprise on the outcome of the primary election by my numerous supporters.

“It is now beyond doubt that the delegate list used on the day of the primary election was doctored and strangely injected with a mind blowing number of delegates who are neither executive members of our party nor statutory delegates.”

Abraham had on Sunday congratulated the winner and also commended the electoral committee headed by Jigawa state governor, Muhammad Badaru Abubakar for conducting a transparent primary.
