Oyo LG election: Petitions flood APC secretariat over alleged imposition of candidates

Some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Oyo State have petitioned the state chapter of the party over what they termed as imposition of candidates in the forth coming local government election in the state billed for Saturday May 12th.
Naijadeeds reports that this is coming four days after the party released the full list of the candidates for the election.

It was learnt on Tuesday that the aggrieved members have started submitting their petitions at the Oke-Ado state Secretariat of the party in Ibadan, the state capital.

According to one of the petitions obtained by Naijadeeds from aggrieved members across all the 10 wards in Irepo Local Government Area, they said they followed the directives of the state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi by “choosing their chairmanship and councillorship candidates through consensus.”

The aggrieved members, however, said they were shocked when another name was announced at the meeting held on Friday.

While appealing to the governor to rescind the decision, they explained that all the ten wards in the council area chose ex-chairman, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) in the state, Mr. Yekini Popoola and not Asifu Adediran whom they said “was forced” on them as chairmanship candidate.
