An aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress for Akure North Constituency, Akindele Adeniyi says no primary election was held in his constituency.
According to him, the venue of the election was not communicated to the aspirants
Adeniyi, who described the whole exercise as a ruse, said this is the beginning of the failure of APC in the state.
The former House of Assembly member, however, blamed the leadership of the party for the crisis that engulfed after the exercise.
He said the action of the state chairman of the party, Ade Adetimehin has created needless crisis in the party by being biased.
According to him, the party leadership has failed to provide a level playing field for all the aspirants.
He noted that this would affect the chances of the party in the general election.
Adeniyi said, “my intention is to go back to the Assembly because when I was in the House I gave my people dividend of democracy but as at today, no primary election in my local government area, precisely in my constituency.
“Initially as a contestant I should know the venue of the primary but it was not communicated to me and the fault is from our party.
“If you look at the APC in Ondo state now, you will see that there is a crisis and the problem emanated from the party Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, he is using his position to create crisis in the state.”
Adeniyi, who lamented that the primary election was flooded with irregularities among others said “when I collected my form, the APC chairman, Adetimehin promised then that there would be a level playing ground for all aspirants but there was not level playing ground for all aspirants today.
“They were spreading the rumour that I have stepped down, I want to say that I did not step down for anybody, what I’m saying is that election did not hold at all.
“APC should go back to the drawing board and do the needful so that the general elections will be okay for us otherwise there is going be a problem.”
