Professor SOREMEKUN, the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University Oye Ekiti, it will be recalled was the Returning Officer for the governorship election in Edo state last September in which the PDP candidate lost to the APC.
Now, Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Ondo state, BANJI OKUNOMO is alleging that several officials who perpetrated the rigging of the Edo election where being escorted to Akure on Friday by policemen from Ekiti state, with instructions to repeat what they did in Edo state.
OKUNOMO said this is uncalled for and is an attestation to the APC’s desperation to rig the election in favour of its candidate.
He further warned that any attempt to manipulate the result of the election in Ondo state would be vehemently resisted by the people of the state.
