Why INEC Should Postpone Ondo Election - Fayose by PMBNG(m): 7:41pm On Nov 23, 2016
AYODELE Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State has backed the call by the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) for the postponement of the Ondo governorship election.

Reacting to the victory of the party’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, at the Court of Appeal on Wednesday, Mr. Fayose told journalists in Ado Ekiti that the electoral body should postpone the election as it did recently in Edo.

He said the victory of Mr. Jegede as the PDP candidate in the Saturday election was not in favour of the party to win the poll.

He called for the postponement of the poll as done by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the last Edo governorship election.

Mr. Fayose alleged that INEC, in collaboration with some people, had succeeded in undermining the strength of the party through the long judicial impediment.

“Postponing this governorship election remains the best option if INEC is truly an unbiased umpire,” he said.

“I commend the Court of Appeal panel as the judgment should not have been otherwise because you cannot cover the truth. l have said it ab initio that charlatans in PDP are colluding with INEC and some elements to undermine our party,’’ he said.

He said INEC had no reason in the first instance to change Mr. Jegede’s name for any other person’s.

“This is not the best of times for us in the PDP and the good people of Ondo State. This is not the best time this judgment should have come.

“But we are still looking for Nigeria of our own, I mean Nigeria, where there will be fairness and equity.

“It is regrettable that some charlatans can be colluding with INEC and others to destroy our party. This is very regrettable and unfortunate.

“As it is now, the commission has no reason not to postpone this election because what the INEC did was a deliberate action to weaken our party.

“This judgment coming at this time is a major setback for our party, which I believe can only be cured if this election is postponed,’’ he said.
