When APC wins Ondo, PDP should not claim is rigging, APC didn’t complain When PDP won Edo – Senator Lawan
Lawan taunted the opposition party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to accept defeat; if the party loses at the Ondo state gubernatorial election on October 10.
Journalists reports that the incumbent governor, Rotimi Akeredolu will be going head-head with the candidate of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede and other candidates on the 10th of October.
Lawan stated this while commenting on a point of order raised by Senator Matthew Urhoghide from Edo State; who commended President Muhammadu Buhari and other stakeholders; during the Edo State Governorship election.
“The people of Edo State, including my Governor praised Mr. President for providing the ambience for INEC; and the police to discharge their duties without fear or favour.
“What Mr President did in ensuring free and fair elections on the 19th of September in Edo State gives hope to this country”.
Responding, Lawan said: “Even though some of our colleagues are in the opposition; the two Senators who spoke— Mathew Urhoghide and Deputy minority leader who enjoyed the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari; and the APC and they have solid grounds for doing so.
“It is how it should be. We are looking forward to October when the APC will do the same here; and congratulate the President, Inspector General of Police for fair and free elections.
“I hope that the opposition will not see that election as compromised; well-done done for that very frank and patriotic submission”.
