Chief Olusola Oke, an aspirant for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket in Ondo State, has criticized the decision to reschedule the primary election in 13 wards of Okitipupa Local Government area, calling it a ploy to deceive party members.

The Governorship Primary Election Committee, led by Gov. Usman Ododo, declared Saturday’s exercise inconclusive, prompting the rescheduling.


In a statement issued by the Olusola Oke Campaign Organisation’s spokesperson, Mr. Ojo Oyewamide, the rerun was denounced as an attempt to create the illusion of a credible primary.

“The purported rescheduling of the exercise in Okitipupa Local Government Area raises questions. How can a primary election, which didn’t occur anywhere in the state, be rescheduled in just one of the 18 local government areas?” Oyewamide questioned.

He further criticized the timing of the rescheduled election, scheduled for noon on Sunday, noting that it coincided with church hours, potentially disenfranchising Christian members of the community.

Describing Saturday’s primary as a mockery of democracy, Oyewamide insisted that the party’s integrity was compromised, turning it into a subject of ridicule in the eyes of both opposition parties and the people of the state.

The statement emphasized opposition to any attempt by the Kogi governor to impose a candidate through what was described as a flawed exercise, asserting its rejection by Oke’s camp.
