PDP Treated Primary Aspirants In Osun State Fairly

Ahead of the Osun State Governorship election, the South-West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has debunked the news that Senator Ademola Adeleke was favoured to emerge as the party’s candidate in the last Saturday’s primary election.

Dr. Eddy Olafeso, the Chairman of the PDP in the zone, stated that every contestant at the primary was treated fairly and that Adeleke emerged as the candidate with highest number of votes.

According to him, the exercise took place under live television coverage and that votes were counted more than once just to be sure that there was no form of injustice.

Addressing journalists in Lagos on Friday, Olafeso said, “The Osun PDP primaries election was one of the most transparent in recent political history. The entire electoral activity was televised live and counting was done in the presence of agents of all contesting aspirants. The main challenger requested for a recount and this was done twice. No process can be more open than this.
