The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and its candidate, Ademola Adeleke, would still lose the rerun of the governorship election in Osun even if they get the support of the Social Democratic Party, SDP candidate, Iyiola Omisore.
APC said the opposition party was battling to get Omisore’s support because it was clear to them that Adeleke cannot win on the popular vote.
In a statement on Tuesday by the Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy of the APC in Osun State, Kunle Oyatomi, the party said Adeleke was the least educated and qualified candidate.
The statement reads, “They know that the PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, can’t win on the popular votes.
“First, he is the least educated and qualified candidate Osun has ever raised in its history of the political contest.
“The fraud that brought him to this level (manipulation of card readers and purchase of PVC of ill-informed voters) that we are now discussing him as a potential governor, marks us as essentially an illiterate and backward democracy.”
