Your vote buying, desperation will fail on March 9, Oyo APC tells PDP

The Oyo Chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Thursday warned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against continuous voters’ inducement, adding that it has uncovered plans by the Peoples Democratic  Party in the state to further perform massive rigging and vote buying in the March 9 Gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections.

The party said it would put up a strict resistance to the PDP and its candidate, Mr Seyi Makinde to ensure they do not steal the peoples’ mandate, adding that the party would not tolerate a repeat of the Saturday election robbing in some local governments.

APC in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Dr AbdulAzeez Olatunde noted that winning an election should not be seen as do or die affair, noting that the situation is different in Makinde’s case as his only investment in Oyo State is directed solely to the prime seat of the Governor’s Office.

Dr Olatunde said that the PDP and its candidate has been engaged in voters’ inducement with his call centre and vote buying during the election, noting that investigation by the party revealed that the PDP allocated hundreds of thousands of naira to each polling unit to buy votes during the February 23 election.

He said that APC has forwarded its petition to appropriate quarters to challenge the results of the last Saturday election in the state, warning that it would not fold its hands to allow for a repeat of such in the gubernatorial election.

The Publicity Secretary stressed that Oyo State governor’s seat is not for sale and not for highest bidder but for an individual who has a huge stake in Oyo State and visible industry expertise, adding, “APC candidate, Oloye Bayo Adelabu stands out among all the candidates. He is the only one who dared to keep his money where his mouth is by investing massively in the state.

“Our people should know that APC which symbolizes greatness for the country and as supported by Nigerians during the February 23, 2019 election with their mandate for President Buhari is the only party that has the true interest of Nigerians at heart. We urge the people of Oyo State to follow suit by voting our candidates in the gubernatorial and House of Assembly election.

“Oyo people should replicate President Buhari’s victory at the national level which is a win for integrity and symbolizes a national resistance to corruption as embodied by the PDP. We appeal to the people to reject the PDP and its candidates with their vote buying and inducement as it is a Greek gift,” Dr Olatunde explained.
