The party also called on its guber candidate in the state, Eyitayo Jegede to head to the election tribunal, adding that the process was flawed.

The APC candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu emerged as the Ondo Governor elect after garnering over 244,000 votes.

According to Punch, the spokesman of the Makarfi faction, Dayo Adeyeye said the results of the just concluded election did not reflect the will of the people.

Adeyeye also said “The election and all actions leading to it fell short of laid down principles guiding the conduct of elections in Nigeria.”

Adding that “INEC has, however, graduated from inconclusive elections as seen in Kogi, Bayelsa, FCT, Imo, Nasarawa and some other bye-elections in the country to ‘advanced election rigging’, as in the case of Edo and Ondo states governorship elections.

“It is common knowledge that the APC agents openly bought votes in the full glare of security operatives who did nothing to prevent such dastardly violation of the electoral law.

“It is not surprising that the electorate in Ondo State became so vulnerable to the corruptive influence of the APC because of the hash economic situation in the country inflicted on Nigerians by the APC administration which has, indeed, made all Nigerians virtually beggars in their own country.”

Also speaking on the recently concluded election in Ondo, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) connivedwith the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate results.
