The Senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Jimoh Ibrahim, has accused Kogi State Governor, Usman Ododo, and a former Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, of compromising the outcome of the April 20, governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State.

Ibrahim, who addressed a news conference in Abuja specifically accused Ododo and Omo-Agege of changing the venue of the state collation centre abruptly without giving contestants and prior notice.

The duo served as the chairman and the secretary of the election committee sent by the APC to conduct the primaries.

Ibrahim presented documents to journalists, which indicated that the APC primary did not hold in 15 out of the 18 local government areas in the state.

He demanded the conduct of a fresh APC governorship primary in Ondo State on the grounds that election was not conducted in virtually all parts of the state.

Ibrahim alleged that the outcome of the primary election was manipulated to favour Governor Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa of the state.

The federal lawmaker, who was a contestant in the primaries, specifically accused the APC’s electoral committee, chaired by Ododo, of allocating votes, as against conducting genuine polls.

“It was mere allocation of figures, no election. I was not even able to vote,”  he said.
