By: Opeyemi Rasheed.
The Oyo Central Senatorial Candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Luqman Oyebisi Ilaka has described the INEC postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections as a national disgrace, and a reflection of gross incompetence on the part of INEC.
The senatorial candidate made this remarks through his Director General, Bisi Ilaka campaign Organization, Alhaji Bola Akinyemi speaking further he noted that” The postponement was part of a grand design by the All Progressives Congress to thwart the will of Nigerians at all cost”.
He stress that, it’s disheartening that INEC and it’s officials had four years to prepare for an election, that is free, fair and credible but decided to show nothing for it like the current administration.
He however, urged electorates in Oyo Central senatorial to remain calm as a result of the rescheduled elections which has been shifted to 23rd of February, 2019.
Furthermore he noted that “Investigation has revealed that the initial plan of the independent national electoral commission (INEC) was to proceed with the Presidential and National Assembly elections in some States as earlier planned while holding those of the remaining states in a subsequent date. it’s ridiculous that the strategy was to ensure election hold in 26 states, observe the outcome and if opposition is leading in those state, then security agencies will be used to cover up for the incumbent administration.”
