The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned indigenes of Ondo sate against voting for Olusola Oke, the Alliance for Democracy (AD) governorship candidate.

The party also accused Oke of pretending to be a progressive, adding that his spirit is still with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Oke was a member of the PDP for 16 years before he decamped to the APC and then to the AD.

According to Vanguard, the Chairman of the Akeredolu Campaign Platform, Ade Adetimehin said “Oke’s spirit was still with the PDP where had spent 16 years before crossing to the APC and later the AD. He said that Oke wanted to deceive the people of the state in order to get their votes in the forthcoming governorship election.

 “Our people have had enough of PDP misrule in our state and they are waiting for the real progressives party to take over the state. Oke cannot be addressed as a progressive. He spent all his political years in PDP.’’

In a statement debunking the APC’s allegations, Oke’s spokesman, Kola Olabisi, said “APC is full of hypocrites, who are not real progressives but people deceiving Nigerians. When Olusola Oke was with them some months ago, building the APC, he was a progressive then but now that he has been rigged out of the party, he is no more a progressive.

 “They are only afraid of their imminent defeat in the election. The APC people only believe in propaganda and rigging and now we are waiting for them. Because they know their candidate is not popular that is why they are doing all things possible to tarnish Oke’s image and that can’t work for them because the electorate know their choice.”

In a bid to ensure a peaceful election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC announced that it will meet all Ondo governorship candidates on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
