PDP Wins All 33 Chairmanship Seats In Oyo Local Council Election

Candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have won the chairmanship positions in 33 local government areas of Oyo State.

The Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) on Sunday announced the results of the council poll held on Saturday, April 27.

However, the state chapter of the African Action Congress (AAC), has rejected the results of the election.

The party accused the state electoral body and the PDP of orchestrating “a show of shame and a monumental electoral heist that should not be acknowledged by well-meaning Nigerians”.

 

SaharaReporters reported how Babayomi was arrested and detained by the police on Saturday while monitoring the council election in the state.

 

 

Kayode Babayomi, the State AAC Chair in a statement on Sunday said the ‘electoral’ process was marred by widespread irregularities, violence, and intimidation.

 

He said, “We observed serious delays in the distribution of voting materials, deliberate misplaced materials, the mobilization of PDP thugs to intimidate voters, and the undue influence of security operatives.

 

“The Chairman and other party members were beaten and unlawfully detained, and several of our candidates’ wards were disrupted by PDP thugs. Evidence of all these fraudulent acts are properly documented online; many of which were even posted by eligible voters in Oyo State who were grossly disappointed at the show of shame displayed by Seyi Makinde.”

He said, “It is evident that the OYSIEC chairman, Isiaka Olagunje, danced to the tune of the Makinde government, undermining the integrity expected of  an electoral  process. The people of Oyo State have lost trust in the OYSIEC chairman and he should be sanctioned, investigated, arrested and prosecuted as an electoral offender.”

 

The party, therefore, rejected the “purported results announced by the coalition of PDP and OYSIEC, as they do not reflect the will of the people. We declare that there was no election, but rather a coordinated effort to subvert the democratic process”.

 

The statement added, “Our strongholds were surrounded by thugs, and there were instances of missing ballot papers and boxes, massive rigging.

 

“We call for the immediate cancellation of the charade; the fraudulent activity supervised by OYSIEC and that a new date for a free, fair, and transparent electoral process be set. The future of democracy in Oyo State depends on the integrity of our electoral system, and we urge all stakeholders to uphold the principles of democracy.”
