The campaign organization of Mr Gboyega Isiaka, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Saturday governorship election in Ogun, said it would contest outcome of the polls at the tribunal.
The Director of the campaign organization, Mr Ifekayode Akinbode, made this known at a news conference in Abeokuta on Sunday
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared Sen. Ibikunle Amosun, the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate and governor of the state, winner of the polls.
“We hereby declare that the gubernatorial election held on Saturday is very unfortunate and a travesty staged to help the APC achieve victory.
“We are not oblivious of the clear manipulations, misrepresentations, underhand dealings and outright rigging by the APC.
“This was done unfortunately with the culpability of INEC.
“Let us quickly state emphatically that we are displeased with the outcome of the governorship election, particularly as being irregular in most aspects.
“It is clearly not a true reflection of Ogun people’s wish and it will be challenged as appropriate,” Akinbode said.
In a swift reaction, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Timothy Ibitoye, dismissed the claim that INEC connived with PDP to manipulate the results.
The REC said that the results announced by the commission was a true reflection of the votes cast in the state. (NAN)
