The All Progressives Congress, APC, faction in Osun State, has condemned the conduct of the primary election of the party, describing it as a sham with a fraudulent process to favour Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

The faction’s Publicity Secretary, Abiodun Agboola, in a statement made available to journalists in Osogbo said a sizeable number of members who wanted to vote Moshood Adeoti had their names missing in the list.

They also alleged that none of the wards where the primaries took place had result sheets, while accreditations also failed to hold before the election.

“It is necessary and important to inform the general public and Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq-led Osun APC Primary Election Committee of the ongoing irregularities in the conduct of the primary election of the APC in the State of Osun.

“Verified information from the agents of Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, our governorship aspirant, has it that there is no record and result sheets in any of the 332 wards of the state,” part of the statement read.

“Also, there were no proper accreditation in majority of the ward collation centres where voting was taken place. The accreditation done in some places were skewed in favour of Governor Gboyega Oyetola as members of the group were allowed to pass through accreditation process without much ado.

“Names of sizeable number of members of the APC who wanted to vote for Adeoti were missing in the register of the party. This we had envisaged by calling for the display of party register before the conduct of the primary.”

The group which is loyal to former governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola also alleged that known appointees of Oyetola were used as collation officers in the conduct of the primary election, while Adeoti’s loyalists were “brutally attacked” and chased away.

Agboola then described the primary exercise as unacceptable saying that “it is a shame that a sitting governor could result to malpractices in his desperate bid to secure a second term ticket.”
