THE governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, has challenged the victory of Senator Ibikunle Amosun of the All Progressives Congress in the April 11 governorship election before the state election petition tribunal.
GNI disclosed this at a news conference in Abeokuta, on Thursday, adding that the election was allegedly manipulated, hence his decision to seek justice at the tribunal, in order to reclaim what he described as “stolen mandate.”
Isiaka, flanked by his running mate, Mr Tunde Makanjuola; state vice chairman of PDP, Prince Boye Adesina and a member of the House of Assembly-elect for Imeko-Afon, Alhaji Jemili Akingbade, said he was in a “clear lead” in 14 local government areas, while the gap was so close in six local governments.
“It was however a shocker when INEC announced impossible figures from the six council areas of Ogun Central senatorial district and Ado-Odo/Ota in Ogun West senatorial district.
“Whereas, the general low voter turnout across the state and particularly in these council areas was a major talking point earlier that day, the results declared thereafter were a further confirmation of the electoral heist that occurred that day.”
He assured the people of the state that the mandate, which they freely gave him on April 11, would be reclaimed through the courts of law.
