The Inter-Party Advisory Committee in Ogun state has berated the People’s Democratic Party over its rejection of the last Saturday Presidential election.
IPAC expressed displeasure over the rejection of the election result saying since the result is yet to be announced officially the party should have been patient enough.
IPAC Chairman, Abayomi Arabambi refuted the claim by the PDP that the All Progressive Congress (APC) colluded with the state Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Illiyasu and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the election.
Arabambi said, “We saw in the news that the National Chairman was accusing INEC and the security agencies of colluding to rig election in favour of the APC candidate but they have not been able to substantiate their position.
“I don’t understand this noise by PDP that APC colluded with INEC to rig the election; claiming they have certain results with them.”
Arabambi praised the Commissioner of Police and the Resident Electoral Commissioner Prof Abdulganiy Raji for the peaceful conduct of the election.
“In Ogun state, we in IPAC, we give kudos to the Commissioner of Police and the resident electoral commissioner. There is no collusion as far as we are concerned here. Ahmed Illiyasu and Prof Abdulganiy Raji are doing a wonderful job here in Ogun state.
Meanwhile, Arabambi also reacted to the call for the sack of the commissioner of Police by the former governor of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba describing such allegation by the Elder statesman as his personal opinion adding that such should not be taken seriously.
“I respect baba Osoba but the call by him that the CP be removed is uncalled for with due respect. If there was crisis between APC and APM in the stadium, that does not determine the capacity of the CP. Such call is his personal opinion. As far as we are concerned, everything went well in the election.
“What baba said is his personal opinion and such should not be taken seriously.” He emphasised.
