We’ll work against Abiodun Akinlade – APC stalwart protest over alleged imposition

The All Progressives Congress’ Reps candidate, Hon Abiodun Isiaq Akinlade, (representing Yewa South/Ipokia Federal Constituency), has been pegged for failure in the coming general elections.

Akinlade was said to have been imposed on the people by Governor Dapo Abiodun with the support of Senator Solomon Adeola who has clinched the Ogun West Senatorial ticket.

Not quite long after the election, the APC leaders in Yewa South and Ipokia areas through their spokesperson, Hon. Ganiyu Anishulowo, have condemned the primary election, described it as a shady exercise saying, it was undemocratic.

It’s undemocratic and detrimental to our nascent democracy, especially in this twenty-first century, to impose candidates on an exposed populace like ours.

“Anything short of direct primaries is a scam; it’s not the wish of the people, and it is more of disenfranchising the people”.

“This imposition should not stay because Hon Akinlade doesn’t have the clout presently to win at the general elections comes 2023.

“As I speak, as you can see at the election’s venue, he has lost the electorates, especially, to his failure to facilitate the construction of Ilaro-Owode road throughout his twelve years stay at the House of Representatives”, Anishulowo stated

He lamented that Hon Akinlade had applied for the ticket to the Senate, but for the insistence of Sen Adeola to get the senatorial ticket, Governor Dapo Abiodun offered the Reps ticket to Akinlade.

“I want to assure you that with Hon Akinlade, APC has already lost the general elections to the opposition because we will work against him, infact, we won’t allow it; we are going to employ litigation”, he threatened.

Our reporter, moved by the countenance of some party members, gathered that they were disappointed by the emergence of Hon Abiodun Isiaq Abiodun as the Reps candidate for Yewa South/ Ipokia Federal Constituency.

Speaking, one of the aggrieved members who crave anonymity said Hon Akinlade was not the choice of the people.

“I challenged you to do your survey, you will find out that Hon Akinlade doesn’t have majority of our electorates on his side.

“It’s saddening that our Party will lose that seat for the opposition at the election proper comes 2023”.
