Plot to rig Ondo poll – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State yesterday traded words on an alleged plot to rig the November 26 governorship election.
The PDP, in a statement, alleged that the opposition party in the state is sowing illegal Army uniforms for thugs.
Signed by Director of Publicity Mr. Ayo Fadaka, the statement also alleged that APC and another opposition party were collecting voter cards.
But APC Publicity Secretary Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya said the accusation was laughable, stressing it is PDP which plans to rig the election.
He alleged that PDP was recruiting and training snipers ahead of the poll.
Adesanya also noted that PDP was holding meetings with the people by luring them to sell their PVCs .
According to Fadaka, the aim of the opposition party is to intimidate voters so as to rig on election day.
Fadaka said the opposition parties have engaged garment makers to make available Army uniforms of different sizes for thugs.
He said tailors handling the sewing were working from two neighbouring states.
”Members of one of the parties participating in the November 26 governorship election have stockpiled arms in a location within the state”, he said.
Fadaka, however, warned people of the state against activities of members of the opposition party who have been collecting the PVC of potential voters for keeps.
