INEC working with APC to rig Ondo election – Fayose | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, says the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission to accept Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party was evidence that the commission is aiding the All Progressives Congress to influence the poll.

Ibrahim, who was chosen by the Senator Modu Sheriff faction of the PDP, was picked by INEC over Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), who was presented by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi faction of the PDP.

Fayose, however, insisted the development showed that the commission had double standards and was aiding the APC.

“With the development in Ondo Guber election and the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), it is clear that INEC is a department in APC led federal government,” he said.

He argued that Ibrahim did not emerge through any known electoral process as the candidate of the PDP, adding that his acceptance was another plot by the APC to seize control of the state.

He said, “The APC has decided to rig the Ondo State election even before it is conducted and this is sad commentary for our democratic process that was near perfection before the advent of this APC government.

“The question to ask INEC is having accepted the candidate presented by the Malkarfi-led PDP National Caretaker Committee for the Edo State election, relying on the judgment of the Federal High Court, Port-Harcourt, despite the Abuja Federal High Court order at that time, what has changed? Obviously, it is either INEC is playing double-standard or has descended into the arena.”

The commission’s decision led to protests in the state on Friday.

  5. My guy don't politicise truth... Justice Okon Abang is a very Corrupt Judge His judgement so far has been seen as conflicting and controversial yet DSS is not sent to his house... Do you think he is doing all the injustice Free...I am more not a lawyer... But every party has its constitution... If INEC accepted the Edo Man there is no reason why they should not accept that of ONDO Remember is the same ABANG who tried to set confusion in Edo. Armed Markafi is PDP chairman Sheriff is Buhari In law... He is not working for PDP He is working for Buhari's 2nd Term Why is Sheriff bent on being PDP chairman a position that he was suppose to occupy for 3months The Party stakeholders said they don't need him yet he is going Only to Okon Abang's court to scatter the party Which is Buhari's Primary assignment What goes around comes around..

    1. You are a big liar. The statement of the two judgement is not the same and judge abang judgment came first and it's no more proceedings. Instead for the to appeal they apply for stay of proceedings in a state high court against federal high court ruling . Failure!!! Alimodu sherrif was begged buy gullible fayose and wike to join pdp and make him chairman without checking the pdp constitution very well. Now they have the same problems of kawu baraje vs bamangar tukur
