The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has deplored alleged harassment, intimidation and attacks on its members and supporters by thugs in Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, made the condemnation in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, and said that PDP took a serious note of the situation during the election.
Mr Ologbondiyan said that the party believed that the whole world also noted the attacks suspected to have been carried out by its opponents and some compromised security men during the election.
According to him, the entire world witnessed the desperation to hijack power in Ekiti through terrorization, snatching of ballot boxes and ferocious assault on the people, who turned out peacefully to cast their votes.
The party spokesman added that “the PDP is monitoring all events and will make our formal position on the entire process known in due course”.
He called on all PDP members and supporters in the state to continue to be at alert and monitor all results to the end.
“Monitor all results to the very end to ensure that nobody, no matter how highly placed, alters any result that is in our favour.‘ ’
