Ondo Decides: Accept defeat, congratulate Akeredolu - APC charges opposition

...Why you don't deserve such — PDP



The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has continued to bask in the euphoria of its victory in last Saturday governorship election in Ondo State, asking the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP to exhibit the spirit of sportsmanship and concede defeat.

Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the party, Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state gave the charge at a news conference Monday in Abuja.


VOICE AIR MEDIA recalls that the APC had in the aftermath of its loss in the September 19 governorship election in Edo state, immediately congratulated the PDP and its candidate, Gov. Godwin Obaseki.


At the news conference on Monday, Buni also noted that in spite of the fear of violence entertained in some quarters,


“the good people of Ondo state conducted themselves peacefully to elect their governor for the next four years”.


He commended other political parties who participated in the contest but singled out the PDP to return the favour of congratulating them after the Edo election, saying elections must never be a do or die affair.


He said;


“I must not forget to commend other political parties and their candidates who put up a good fight in this election. I encourage us all to always maintain healthy competition in our quest to serve the people.


“It is said, one good turn deserves another, and just like we congratulated PDP in the Edo election, we look forward to seeing PDP and the other political parties extend similar gesture to us in the spirit of good sportsmanship. By so doing, we will make elections in Nigeria healthier and attractive, rather than making elections a do or die affair”.


The party commended President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osibanjo for their leadership roles and support in ensuring its victory.



Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday, reacted to the reelection of Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo State.


PDP said it can’t congratulate Akeredolu due to the appeal by the All Progressives Congress, APC, Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni.



The opposition party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Buni is begging for endorsement of while the structure that produced Akeredolu was faulty.


Ologbondiyan stated this in a statement he signed titled: “Why we can’t congratulate APC yet.”

Ologbondiyan stated this in a statement he signed titled: “Why we can’t congratulate APC yet.”


According to the PDP spokesman: “The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to a press conference by the chairman of the contentious National Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governor Mai Mala Buni, wherein he begged the PDP to congratulate the APC over the outcome of the October 10, Ondo governorship election.



“It is indeed ludicrous and completely absurd that Governor Buni is begging for endorsement of the election in spite of his awareness that the internal mechanism that produced his party’s candidate, as presided over by him, was faulty.


“Nigerians already know that the emergence of Governor Mai Buni in the national leadership of his party is a subject of litigation and as such his nomination of any candidate for the election is seen, even among his party members, as a nullity until the court says otherwise.



“It will therefore be pathetic for Governor Mai Buni to attempt to use the PDP to build something on the nothingness of his position in his party.


”The PDP is too structured as a party to be used by anybody, under any guise, in that regard.
