Ahead of the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have accused each other of plans to rig the election.
The main opposition party has also accused the APC-led federal government of planning to shut down the Akure airport in Ondo State on Thursday (today) to stop top party members from attending a campaign rally scheduled to hold in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, who addressed journalists wednesday, alleged that the move to shut down the airport is part of the diabolic plot by the APC to stall the PDP rally.
He stated that all is set for the PDP mega rally but added that information at the party’s disposal indicates that the federal government is planning to use the excuse that they are carrying out repairs to shut down the airport against PDP members.
Ologbondiyan however said that despite APC’s “shenanigans”, PDP is sure of victory at the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti state.
“ We are very sure that we will defeat the APC again in all the 16 Local Government Areas just like we did in the last election, “ he said.
The PDP Spokesman also urged INEC to ensure that the election is free and fair and that there is a level playing ground.
