Governors elected on the platform of the  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is using the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the November 26 Ondo State governorship election. 

The governors’ forum, in a statement by its secretary, Patrick Okon, alleged that the ruling APC was bent on getting Ondo State by all means with the assistance of INEC.

The forum therefore called for total overhaul of the electoral umpire.

‎”We call on Mr. President to caution his party, APC and INEC to be fair in this coming election scheduled for November 26.‎ We are aware of the plan by APC to get Ondo State by all means, including listing the assistance of INEC.

“We are warning that we will not fold our arms to watch this impunity and day time robbery. INEC is an umpire and should play its role very well so that the electorate will have confidence in it.

“From the way things are going, the people are already losing confidence in the commission. INEC should stick to its electoral mandate and should not subvert the law of the land.

“INEC should conduct itself very well in this forthcoming Ondo State governorship election to avoid a repeat of what happened in Edo election,” the PDP governors said.
