Cancel Ondo APC gubernatorial primary — Omogoroye

Cancel Ondo APC gubernatorial primary — Omogoroye

Folakemi Omogoroye, an All Progressives Congress (APC) Ondo gubernatorial aspirant has called for the cancellation of last Saturday's primary.

The APC gubernatorial primary in Ondo State was held on Saturday, April 20, 2024. It was declared inconclusive and resumed on Sunday (today).

Omogoroye threatened to institute legal action if the primary was not cancelled, denouncing the conduct of the primary while alleging the widespread absence of election materials across the state.

She described the conduct as a rape on democracy, saying her supporters including herself were unable to exercise their right to vote despite her meticulous preparation and financial commitment to the party.

Omogoroye called on President Bola Tinubu, to intervene and cancel the primary.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's Renewed Hope Agenda prompted me to go into the race with assurance that the election is going to be free and fair and that was why I went into this contest.

“But to my greatest surprise, the reverse is the case. I was on the field from 7 am. No election materials were seen, not to talk of seeing any party officials or INEC officials and a voice came up that Aiyedatiwa has won, Aiyedatiwa has won.

“I don’t know how that happened and I don’t know how party is the going to take that because I will not accept that. I believe in the party. I have been in the party for years, and this is the time we have to make the party better that other parties will emulate, but this is not the case.

“Other parties are now making a mockery of our party. All my political followers from all the nooks and crannies of Ondo state have been calling me that the same thing happened all over the state.

She threatened legal action if her demand for a fresh and transparent primary was ignored, adding, “I am not going to accept it. I am calling for cancellation and if this is not done, maybe we’ll meet in the court.”
