OYSIEC: APPS faults Ajimobi’s appointment

The Association of Progressive Political Parties (APPPS) in Oyo State has accused the executive governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi of appointing inexperienced, bias and incompetent individuals who do not have respect for the rule of law as members of Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC), reports ITRealms.

This was contained in a release signed and made available by APPPS Chairman, Mr. David Akinola, Secretary, Mr. Tolu Adedoyin and PRO. Mr. Raji Babatunde after the group’s meeting on last weekend in Oyo State capital, Ibadan.

According to Akinola who is also the Oyo State Chairman of Peoples for Democratic Change (PDC) “OYSIEC are not sincere in conducting local government elections in all the 33 local government areas (LGAs) and 35 newly created  local council development areas (LCDAs) that will be constitutional, democratic, credible, free and acceptable by other political parties  and Oyo State citizens.

Also the Oyo State Chairman of the African Peoples Alliance Party (APA) who is also the state Secretary of APPPS, Mr. Tolu Adedoyin described the promise made by Mr. Jide Ajeigbe, OYSIEC Chairman during a press conference as “pathological lies.”

Mr. Raji Babatunde, the spokesperson of the association said “From the outcome of the OYSIEC meeting we attended on Wednesday, we were fully briefed that OYSIEC are not ready to conduct free, fair and credible elections.”

Till date, he said, they have not been given any election materials, stressing that they don’t know the units and wards of the newly created LCDAs.

“As I’m talking to you our association believed with fact and figures that the result of the proposed local government elections has been collated and ready to be released on the date of the election. APC are looking for participation of more parties as to perfect their rigging plans. We won’t be surprise at the end of the whole election exercise if APC clears all the seats,” he said.
