Alhaji Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola. Newly sworn in governor of Osun state. 

Osun State chapter of the People’s Democratic has disputed the claim by the newly sworn in governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola that a large chunk of ballot papers wrongfully voided during the last governorship election belonged to the All Progressive Congress candidate in a statement signed by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, chairman in Osun state, Hon Soji Adagunodo.

Reacting to the claim made by Oyetola in a television interview shortly after his widely-shunned inauguration, the chairman of the PDP in Osun state, Hon Soji Adagunodo said over 70% of a total of 47,800 ballot papers which were wrongfully voided by the INEC during the last elections were valid votes of the PDP.

Sen. Adeleke makes move to prove a case of a rigged poll at the election tribunal.

Adagunodo said this was discovered during the forensic analysis carried out by experts engaged by the PDP on all ballot papers used for the September 22nd and 27th governorship election.

He therefore described as mischievous the claim by Oyetola that he won the Osun governorship election which had been described by national and international observer groups as fraudulent and unsustainable.

” The APC was the party in connivance with the INEC during the last election. They were the ones who got fraudulent allocation of votes. Why should Oyetola be telling such blatant lies on a matter already before the tribunal?”

The PDP chairman asserted that the truth about the Osun governorship election could not be buried for long and that was why neither Oyetola nor his political party could openly celebrate the supposed victory at the polls just as the swearing-in ceremonies were like a graveyard ceremony.

He added that more damning facts discovered by the PDP team of forensic, biometric and data analysts will be presented at the Election Petition Tribunal in due course.

Adagunodo urged the People of Osun state to remain calm and hopeful that the mandate stolen by the interim governor and his political party would be restored to the rightful winner in due course.
