Osun Decides 2018: APC, INEC creating illegal polling units to rig election – PDP

Published

on

Addressing a press conference on Friday, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, however, said the party would dismantle all the plots of APC.

He said, “We have also alerted Nigerians that the APC in connivance with INEC was creating illegal polling units and delineating illegal wards across the federation.

“It will interest you to know that just as we are preparing for the Osun election, we have been able to burst one of those fictitious electoral wards created for APC to rig election.

“Ila Local Government has 11 electoral wards, but ahead of tomorrow’s (today) election, INEC has created an imaginary 12th ward for Ila and allocated over 4,000 votes for that ward, and that ward is called Iperin.

“What they have done is to create two wards in Iperin, instead of one; allocated votes for both wards including the original ward and the fictitious ward.”

The party spokesperson pointed out that PDP would not accept rigging, saying, “as we promised, we will dismantle every rigging‎ plots of APC ahead of the election.”

He added, “It is strange that an electoral body will connive and collude with a political party with the intention of generating votes that will make them win an election.

2019: Avoid divisive utterances – Gov Ahmed

Published

on

Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed has urged politicians to desist from unguarded and misleading comments capable of creating discord and heating up the polity.

Responding to recent social media posts regarding a message by People’s Democratic Party(PDP) elders in Ifelodun Local Government area inviting members to a political meeting, Governor Ahmed described the issue as a party affair which should not be given any negative connotation. While condemning the post and commentaries that followed, he said such unguarded utterances are not only misleading but also have the capacity to cause divisions that will be difficult to heal in the Kwara South Senatorial district if allowed to fester.

Alhaji Ahmed said while the party as presently constituted in Ifelodun Local Government and indeed Kwara South is known for its inclusiveness and consensus building, the meeting is an internal party affair and should not be given any negative undertone that can undermine the harmony, peace and cohesion of Kwara South Senatorial District and indeed the state at large.

Governor Ahmed urged all PDP aspirants in the state to abide by the party structure’s tradition of unity, peaceful conduct, inclusiveness and respect for the leadership in exercising their right to aspire to elective posts.

Why Toke Benson is fighting James Faleke

Published

on

Mrs. Toke Benson Awoyinka, a House of Reps aspirant, Ikeja Consistency, Lagos State is using every possible means to ensure that she takes over the constituency from Hon. James Faleke amidst several of her allegations against him.

Sources told us that her major grouse was that Faleke contested election in Kogi State and shouldn’t have returned to Lagos to recontest for the seat as House of Reps member representing Ikeja Constituency, Lagos. But she did not tell Lagosians if Faleke resigned his position at the national Assembly while contesting the election in Kogi State.

They added that Toke Bensonalso failed to realize that Hon. James Faleke would have been the governor of Kogi State today if not for political game played against the national leader, Ahmed Tinubu? How do you imagine INEC declaring an election inconclusive when Audu/Faleke were leading the PDP seating government in Kogi – State with about 41,000 votes, while the areas declared inconclusive had just 19,000 votes, but for politics against Tinubu by APC national body, a party Tinubu worked hard for, why would the party substitute the late Abubakar Audufor Yahaya Bello, who was just a runners up in the governorship election primaries?

Those in the know said that Mrs Toke Benson ignorant of the fact that Faleke changed the tide of that election in Kogi. That in the two previous elections that Abubakar had contested in Kogi State he was unable to win Kogi West District. Falekemade it possible within 3months of joining the race, they won 6 of 7 LGAs in Kogi West District. Barr. Toke Benson has benefitted a lot from Faleke even though she never acknowledged it.

We gathered that Hon. James Faleke has brought a lot of developmental stride to Ikeja since he occupied that position at the National Assembly and has touched many lives through empowerment and jobs creation.

It is interesting to know that Toke Bensonhas not won any election, not even Party Primaries, compared to Faleke whose political structures cut across Lagos State.
