PDP to INEC: Don’t recognise Oshiomhole as APC chairman
…says no provision for voice vote in Electoral Act
[6/28, 11:18 AM] nasirdambatta: The Peoples Democratic Party has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission not to recognise the newly-elected National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole.
It said that his emergence by affirmation was in violation of democratic requirements of direct voting by delegates.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, made the position of the party known while receiving party leaders from Kabba/Bunu area of Kogi State at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.
He also asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to commence an investigation into the reports that the 24 governors elected on the platform of the APC allegedly diverted N150m each, amounting to N3.6bn, from their state coffers, to fund the APC’s national convention.
The convention was held in Abuja on Saturday.
Ologbondiyan also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of complicity in the alleged acts of corruption that he said had pervaded his administration and party and, therefore, submitted that contrary to claims by cronies, he (Buhari) was practically lacking in integrity.
