‘We’ll meet in court’ — female guber hopeful calls for cancellation of Ondo APC primary

Folakemi Omogoroye, a governorship hopeful in Ondo, has called for the cancellation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election in the state.

Omogoroye described the APC primary election that held on Saturday in Ondo as a “complete rape on democracy.”

“There was no election anywhere,” she said.

She lamented the absence of electoral officials and voting materials at voting centers.


Omogoroye alleged that she and her supporters were unable to exercise their rights to vote despite “her meticulous preparation and financial commitment to the party”.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu gave us women a renewed hope agenda that prompted me to go into the race with assurance that the election is going to be free and fair and that was why I went into this contest,” she said.

“But to my greatest surprise, the reverse is the case. I was on the field from 7am, no election materials were seen, not to talk of seeing any party officials or INEC officials and a voice came up that Aiyedatiwa has won.


“I don’t know how that happened and I don’t know how the party is going to take that, because I, Engr. Folakemi Omogoroye will not accept that.

“I believe in the party, I have been in the party for years, and this is the time we have to make the party better that other parties will emulate, but this is not the case.

“Other parties are now making mockery of our party. All my political followers from all the nooks and crannies of Ondo state have been calling me that the same thing happened all over.

“I am not going to accept it, and now, I am calling for cancelation and if this is not done, maybe we’ll meet in the court.”


Some other guber hopefuls have also called for the cancellation of the primary election, citing irregularities.
