Ahead of September 22 governorship election in Osun state as the two leading political parties, All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are set to conduct their primary election this week, the opposition PDP has raised alarm about plan by the ruling APC to disrupt its primary election.
This allegation was contained in a statement issued in Osogbo the state capital by PDP state chairman, Soji Adagunodo.
The Chairman alleged that chieftains of the APC held several meetings with notorious thugs in a location in the state to hatch plans of causing mayhem during the primary election.
According to him, “desperate plans of the APC was borne out of the party’s fears about what a successful PDP primaries portends for the party in the governorship election holding in September.
“We therefore call on the State Commissioner of police, the Director of the State Security Service, the Commandant of the Civil Defence Corp and other security agencies to ensure maximum security before and during the exercise which will involve over 3000 party members.
“We also urge the security agencies to beam their search light on some chieftains of the APC who have been notorious for perpetrating violence using hoodlums often referred to as state boys by Governor Rauf Aregbesola”.
