The APC candidate, in a statement issued in Akure, the state capital on Monday by the Director of Communications of the Akeredolu Campaign Platform, Mr. Soji Alakuro, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security agencies in the state not to succumb to the alleged antics of the governor.
Akeredolu, who expressed his readiness for the forthcoming poll, said all stakeholders should work towards ensuring a free and fair governorship election in the state rather than postponing it.
However, in a reaction, the Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, Mr. Ayo Fadaka, described the allegation of the APC as untrue and baseless.
He said the APC was jittery because of the popularity of the PDP’s candidate for the election.
Fadaka said, “It is an empty allegation because they have no evidence to support their allegation. It is all lie.”
But Akeredolu further alleged that the governor was planning to organise a three-day protest across the state so as to give excuse of insecurity as a reason for the postponement.
He said, “We are aware of the untoward moves and pressures being mounted on the Independent National Electoral Commission as well as friendly security heads in the state by Governor Olusegun Mimiko on the need to postpone the forthcoming governorship election in the State".
