According to him, the Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State and Senator Ovie Omo – Agege manipulated primary election, was the biggest electoral fraud in Nigeria that must not be allowed to stand in the interest of internal party democracy .


The electoral frauds he added, were well captured ward by ward and local government by local government, in the reports obtained from the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) , which clearly shows that election did not hold in 159 out of 203 wards and 15 out of 18 local government councils in the State .


The fraud he disclosed further , was so appalling that even as one of the contestants in the election , he was unable to vote , which made him to call the National Chairman of the party , Abdullahii Umar Ganduje , who according to him , sent some electoral officers to his house for him to cast his vote .


” However, since my house is not a designated polling unit or centre for the election , I turned down the offer of the electoral officers “, he said .


Consequently, according to him, he has litigated against the mega fraud , called primary election by the National Working Committee ( NWC) of APC as carried out by Governor Usman Ododo and Senator Ovie Omo – Agege.


The litigation , he explained , was initiated within the time frame prescribed by relevant provisions of the 2022 electoral act , and would be sustained up to the Supreme Court.


” Two clear prayers are being sought for , in the court as far as mega fraud called Ondo APC Gubernatorial Primary Election is concerned.


” The two prayers are (i), that the sham carried out on Saturday, April 20th 2024 , should be cancelled for fresh one to be conducted and (ii) , for delisting of APC from Ballot in the November 2024 Gubernatorial Election in Ondo State “, he said .
