Osun Guber, A Temporary Setback – Ogunbiyi
Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has denounced the recent governorship re-run election in the state as a rape of democracy and temporary setback which should not stand.
In a statement signed by him and made available to journalists in Osogbo, the state capital, Saturday, Ogunbiyi alleged that the exercise negated democratic norms and far from being free, fair and credible.
He noted that intimidation of voters, harassment of PDP leaders, journalists and domestic observers during the excercise were clear affirmation of the ruling party’s desperation to win at all cost using government institutions and thugs.
“It is regrettable that a normal electoral process that should be free and fair turned into a theatre of war” Ogunbiyi lamented and also sympathised with the families of those who lost their loved ones or brutalised during the re-run election.
Appreciating the people of the state and his supporters for voting for PDP, Ogunbiyi extolled Senator Ademola Adeleke, the PDP governorship candidate and the entire party for putting up a good fight.
He threw his weight behind the party candidate and urged him to use every legitimate means to reclaim his mandate, affirming that the battle is not over.
