The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday claimed that governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had planned to bring in thugs to Ekiti State to disrupt yesterdays governorship election but for the intervention of security agencies.
This is even as they accused the national chairman of APC, Chief Odigie Oyegun of breaching sections of the constitution and the Electoral Act, by allegedly engaging in campaigns and addressing press conferences where he solicited votes for the APC candidate less that 24 hours to the election in clear breach of the said laws.
The party cited sections 99 and 128 of the electoral act which provides that campaign in public must end 24 hours before and the need for orderly conduct during elections.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, who was flanked by the National Woman Leader, Dr Kema Chikwe and the National Organising Secretary, Alhaji Abubakar Mustapha, also accused the APC leadership of always denigrating the person and office of the President, stressing that APC chairman carried out the act to overheat the polity and cause mayhem in the state.
The PDP had frowned at a comment by the Oyegun who said any act of impunity whoever did not condemn it will not have the moral right to condemn the reacts that such actions my elicit.
