The Chief Press Secretary of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Rotimi Oyekanmi, on Wednesday said the internal crises within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will not prevent the commission from conducting the Ondo governorship election as slated.
Recall that the nation’s electoral umpire had recently replaced Eyitayo Jegede with businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim as the PDP governorship candidate in the November 26 election in Ondo State.
The INEC Chief Press Secretary stated that the intra-party conflicts are not enough reasons to postpone an election under the Electoral Act, Punch reports.
Oyekanmi, “The process for postponing or shifting of elections are spelt out in the Electoral Act as amended. One of the reasons is natural disaster. No aspect of the reasons stated for this include intra-party crisis as we are witnessing in the party you have mentioned.
“Under the Electoral Act, intra-party conflict is not recognised as one of the reasons why INEC must shift the date of an election we have given notice of since March.
“As I speak today, there is no plan to postpone it. We are going ahead with the election as slated for November 26.”
