The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship standard bearer in Ogun State, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (alias GNI), has insisted that the victory of his rival in All Progressives Congress(APC ), Ibikunle Amosun is fraudulent.

He also expressed optimism that the gale of defection of PDP members to the APC would not blare the fortunes of the party in future elections .

The PDP chieftain who spoke to journalists in Ado-Ekiti shortly after the meeting of SouthWest Leaders of the party hinted that all electoral fraud perpetrated during the said election would be made public. He spoke of how his rival allegedly conspired with certain individuals,to undermine the electoral process.

Mr Isiaka argued that the results of the election, as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was not a true reflection of the people’s wish.

Specifically, the PDP candidate disclosed that his petition would address, amongst other things, the alleged deployment of some unwholesome PVCs in the election.

His words, “you know, generally, once you take a case to the tribunal, you need to be careful about what you say in public. But, I think the general thing is that there is gross manipulation of the election and we have done out own findings in that regard. And we have come to the conclusion that we are not going to allow the electoral fraud to stand “

Adding to that, he stated; “there are a lot of cases of people using all manners of Permanent Voter – Cards ( PVCs) from various sources which I am sure they will explain at the tribunal. And so many other things that are contrary to the electoral act. For this reasons, I feel this is the mandate freely given to me by the people of Ogun State. So, as an individual I cannot allow it go like that. We must stand up to defend the position of Ogun people in that election.

The governorship candidate opined that the success of any opposition political party would not be measured by the strength of its members. “The opposition is not defendant on the number of people but how vibrant those involve are. For us in PDP, the question is, do we have enough qualify people to stand up to the new government of APC? I think I would say yes .It doesn’t matter to us how many of our members are defecting to the new ruling party. I am sure when many of the defectors get to APC and see what is happening, they would retrace their steps .Those people in APC today how were they when they started as Action Congress (AC )”.
