The candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the just concluded Ekiti State governorship election, Segun Oni, has rejected outcome of the poll.
The All Progressive Congress candidate, Biodun Oyebanji, emerged the winner with187,057 votes to defeat Oni who came second with 82,209.
The Nation reports that the SDP governorship candidate, who spoke through the party’s agent and former Attorney-General, Owonseni Ajayi, described the the results of the poll declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission as a charade that does not reflect the popular wishes and aspirations of the people.
He lamented that the poll was riddled with irregularities and voter’s inducement.
He stated the election was nothing but a fraud against Ekiti people, claiming that those who wanted to vote for him across the 2,445 voting centres were harassed and intimidate to clear way for the emergence of unpopular candidate.
He vowed to challenge the outcome of the election in court, saying the results announced by INEC was unacceptable to him and the leadership of the SDP.
Ajayi, who refused to sign the election final results at the INEC State collation centre, said: “We are rejecting the results because the election was characterised by violence and intimidation of voters.”
When asked if the outcome of the poll will be challenged in Court, he said, “We will definitely challenge the outcome of these results in the court of law for posterity and for generation coming to know that when conducting elections, you must follow the rules and procedures.”
