Kolapo Olusola, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State, has called out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to Olusola, INEC is frustrating his efforts to duly file a petition at the election petitions tribunal.
Olusola it would be recalled said he would be challenging the victory of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Kayode Fayemi, as declared by the INEC.
“We applied for certified true copies of election documents to assist in the preparation and presentation of my petition. The application was filed on July 16 to the Ekiti State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof Abdulganiyu Raji, and upon approval of the application, we made payment on July 20. Till now, no document has been made available to us by INEC. We equally made an application for certified true copies of the document to the INEC Chairman, Abuja, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, on July 17, and upon approval, payment was made on July 18” he said.
Olusola added that;
“I, therefore, make a passionate appeal to INEC not to frustrate me further as the damage it has done to me is enough. The action of INEC is showing that they are out to frustrate me so that time will completely run out against me in line with the expectation of their task masters.”
