Some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State have called for the disqualification of Hon. Agboola Ajayi, the deputy governor of Ondo State and for the immediate arrest of Mr Kingsley Chinda, the Secretary of the PDP Ward congresses Electoral Committee for Ondo State, over alleged injection 101 fake delegates into the Adhoc delegates’ list of the PDP ahead of the party primary on July 22, 2020.
The PDP leaders who gathered in Akure from across the three Senatorial Districts of Ondo State made the call while addressing newsmen on Sunday.
Starnews NG reports that the PDP leaders were led by their spokesman, Hon Bitire Solomon, a former council boss and a chieftain of the party from Okitipupa local government area of Ondo State.
“Agboola Ajayi must be disqualified for fraudulently injecting 101 fake delegates into the Adhoc delegates list of Ondo State PDP in collusion with Kingsley Chinda, the Secretary of the PDP Ward congresses Electoral Committee.”
“It could be recalled that three days ago while the Electoral panel was collating the results of the ad-hoc delegates Congresses, there were heavy protests by Party members who were chanting war songs and raining curses on Ajayi and Chinda at the front of Heritage Hotel in Akure after information filtered in that both of them were tampering with the delegates list.”
“Suddenly after the protests, members of the panel disappeared into tin air and thereafter converged in a hotel in Lagos to hatch the evil plot”
“As we speak, over 101 names have been injected into the Adhoc delegates list ahead of the PDP primary by Ajayi and Mr Chinda, the Secretary of the panel.”
“We are here to call on the leadership of the party to immediately arrest Chinda and disqualify the deputy governor for fraudulently manipulating the delegates list”
Meanwhile, Okunomo Campaign Organisation has vowed to stop at nothing in commencing full legal action if the doctored list is not reversed by the leadership of the party.
Speaking through its spokesman, Mr Akinrinlola Olumide in a telephone interview on Sunday, Okunomo said they would take the party to court if justice is not done by the leadership of the party to revert to the original delegates list.
