One of the national chairmanship aspirants of the People Democratic Party, Prof Tunde Adeniran has rejected the anticipated outcome of the Saturday national convention of the party.
Prof Adeniran’s rejection of the outcome of the convention came ahead of the counting of the vote cast by the delegates.
In a statement issued by Taiwo Akeju, Director, Media and Publicity of Tunde Adeniran Campaign Organization, he alleged that the delegates influenced in casting their votes by one “unity list” that found its way into the venue of the convention.
“We reject the entire electoral process of December 9, 2017. The election has been grossly compromised to achieve a predetermined end in line with the illegal Unity List prepared by Governor Wike and Ayodele Fayose and foisted on the entire delegates.
“Consequently, we submit that this election is a sham and the result therefrom is unacceptable. We reject it in its entirety.
“We consider this so-called election as a travesty of democracy and due process, which further entrenches the culture of impunity that has done a great damage to the party in the past.
“Our position is also that this election should be cancelled and the entire leadership of the party should be handed over to the Board of Trustees which we regard as the conscience of the party, to organise a credible election for the party in due cause”.
