All Progressives Congress, Peoples Democratic Party clash over alleged violence plot in Osun

The All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State on Saturday accused each other of plans to cause mayhem in the state.

The All Progressives Congress in a statement signed by its Chairman, ‘Gboyega Famoodun accused the PDP of planning to unleash an attack on its witnesses at the tribunal hearing of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s petition against Senator Ademola Adeleke’s victory in the last July governorship poll.

The APC also accused the PDP of planning mayhem regardless of the outcome of the tribunal just to create the impression that Oyetola’s administration was unpopular.

Reacting to the allegations, Osun State PDP Caretaker Chairman, Dr Akindele Adekunle, said the APC had perfected a plot to burn down the State Office of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Osogbo, targeting specifically the strong room where Bimodal Voter Accreditation system machines used for the last governorship poll were kept.

Odekunle also said the APC was raising the alarm of insecurity to force change of venue of the tribunal sitting to Abuja because it was scared of the expected ease of verification and consequent invalidation of its claim of over-voting should the tribunal sittings continue in Osogbo.

He also alleged that the APC had concluded plans to halt further sitting of the tribunal, while it perfects plan to expose BVAS machines to doctoring if the panel sitting should be relocated.
