The Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday accused the Independent National Electoral Commission of plotting to cause crisis in Lagos State.
It alleged that INEC was disobeying the order of the Federal High Court to declare the result of the February 23, 2019 National Assembly election for Ajeromi/Ifelodun Federal Constituency, which, it claimed was won by its candidate, Rita Orji.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, said by its plan to conduct a supplementary poll for “an already concluded election in defiance of the ruling of the court,” INEC had confirmed the fears that it had been compromised to create situations to subvert the will of the people and award the Ajeromi/Ifelodun Federal Constituency seat to the All Progressives Congress.
Ologbondiyan said the PDP had been made aware of the alleged vicious designs by an APC cabal in Lagos to foist their stooge on the Ajeromi/Ifelodun Federal Constituency seat.
He further alleged that the plot was to use the APC candidate to divert resources and opportunities meant for the welfare of the masses in the constituency, to finance their lifestyle.
Ologbondiyan said, “This practically informs the desperation by the APC to forcefully take over the Ajeromi/Ifelodun seat, a malicious project that has failed and will always fail.”
