The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state has accused the Ekiti state independent electoral commission of working in tandem with the state government to rig the December 23 local government election in the state.
The accusation was made on Thursday by the Ekiti state Director of Publicity for the APC, Taiwo Olatunbosun during an interview with newsmen in Ado Ekiti.
Olatunbosun said actions of the members of the state independent electoral commission who are allegedly card carrying members of the peoples democratic party precipitated the party’s decision.
Olatunbosun said the party has decided not to participate in the local government elections in the state.
This is coming against the earlier stand of the party saying they are set to contest in the December 23rd election but making sudden U-turn now. This new development no doubt will puncture the ambition of some of the party members who have been preparing to partake in the council poll.
