Why we petitioned Tinubu over Reps bye election —Ondo PDP

The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State has explained the reason it wrote President Bola Tinubu over a bye election in the state on February 3, 2023, noting that it is demanding credible election from INEC.

Below is the letter written to the President;

23rd January, 2024.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR),
President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Aso Rock Villa,
Abuja.

Your Excellency,

AKOKO BYE-ELECTION: THE NEED FOR MR PRESIDENT TO ENSURE THAT SECURITY AGENCIES CONDUCT THEMSELVES PROFESSIONALLY AND INEC IMPARTIAL .

The February 3, 2024 bye-election in Akoko North East/Akoko North West Federal Constituency in Ondo State will be another test for Nigeria’s democracy. Whether or not security agencies will be professional in the discharge of their duties or descend into the arena, muscling up opposition candidates, thereby creating tension that is avoidable.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter wishes to plead with Mr President to prevail on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct free, fair and credible election. The people’s votes must count as any attempt to rig the election will be resisted.

Our party notes the wilful attempts by certain elements in government with insatiable appetite for greed and avarice for power through any crooked means, to use this election to test the will of the people, no matter the dire consequences of such importunate and inordinate ambitions.

These lazy politicians rather than meaningfully engage the electorates are again banking and shamelessly boasting on your support to skew the electoral process to their undue advantage.

It is against this background that, we make this appeal to allow all those that will be on duty for this election to discharge their responsibilities professionally in order to strengthen our democracy.

Kennedy Ikantu Peretei.

State Publicity Secretary, PDP Ondo State.
