Apparently dissatisfied with the conduct of the Jujy 24 local government election in Ogun state, the state chapter of the Accord Party, has written the State Independent Elelctoral Commission, demanding the Certify True Copy of the results of the elections in the State.
The Sagamu LG party Chairman, Adetayo Solanke on Thursday in the letter addressed to the Chairman of OGISEC, specifically requested for the results of the election in Sagamu local government area of the state.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the party asked that the result sheets be forwarded to it within 24 hours of receiving their letter.
It was further gathered that the request was for the party to prosecute its matters at the election petition tribunal .
The letter titled ” Application for the Certify True Copy of the election
result held on the 24th July, 2021 read “recall that our party ( Accord party) is one of the parties that participated in the just concluded elelctions held on the 24th July, 2021.
“I humbly request and apply on behalf of the party for the Certify True Copy of the local government election results of Sagamu Local Government Area held on the 24th of July, 2021, within 24 hours upon the receipt of this letter.”
In a similar development, the Chairmanship candidate of the party in the Sagamu local government area of the State, Oke Micheal alleged that no election was conducted in the local government.
Oke in a letter written to OGISEC, dated and written to the OGISEC Chairman claimed that so many polling units in the Local government did not recieve election materials hence, no election was carried out.
The former candidate alleged that places like ; Ogijo, Simawa, Ode-Lemo and some other polling units in the local government did not get election materials.
He therefore said the party rejected totally the election results announced by OGISEC for the local government.
He said “I hereby state and declare that there was no local government polls/ elections in Sagamu local government council or whatsoever on Saturday 24th of July, 2021”.
