The Ogun State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Sikirulai Ogundele, has issued an appeal to the Inspector General of Police, Mr Kayode Egbetokun, over the report of the Ogun State Command of Police on the complaint of breach of Electoral Act 2022 against Dapo Abiodun, Yemi Sanusi and APC through vote buying, snatching and destruction of ballot papers and boxes, thuggery, causing harm, and other offences on Monday, 17th July, 2023.

Hon. Ogundele stated that the party and its governorship candidate had petitioned the Inspector General of Police on May 2nd, 2023, to investigate the breach of Electoral Act 2022, perpetuated by Governor Dapo Abiodun, Yemi Sanusi and the APC through vote buying, snatching, and destruction of ballot papers and boxes, thuggery, causing harm, and many other offences.

He further called out Governor Abiodun for attempting to suppress the report and distort the findings of the investigation ordered by the immediate past Inspector General of Police based on their petition dated May 2, 2023.

Hon. Ogundele also alleged that Governor Abiodun diverted taxpayers’ money to pay “One Card Nigeria Limited” owned by Mr Tunde Odulaja up to billions of naira to produce cards for the purpose of buying votes in the March 18, gubernatorial election.

The PDP chairman further remarked that Governor Abiodun is trying to suppress the report because he knows that the investigations have uncovered many atrocities he has perpetrated with his co-travellers with evidence provided by various witnesses and facts made available, as well as how government accounts were used to buy votes.

The report is expected to reveal how the governor and APC resorted to ballot snatching, poll disruption, destruction of electoral materials as well as physical attacks on supporters and sympathizers of the PDP.

Hon. Ogundele called on the Inspector General of Police to ensure that the findings of the investigation are not tampered with or distorted. He urged the Inspector General to bring those who have committed criminal infractions to book in order to ensure that the rule of law prevails.
