The main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has counseled President Buhari not to break his promises on his firm decision not to interfere in poll, particularly the coming election in Ondo state scheduled on the 10th October, 2020 governorship election.

Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National spokesman, said this at a press briefing on Sunday in Abuja.

PDP National spokesman, asked on Buhari not to give up to the unnecessary distress of those conspired to use violence and ‘federal might’ to rig the coming election in Ondo state against the desire and aspirations of the good people of Ondo state.

Kola Ologbondiyan statement read in full: “Our campaign, therefore, calls on Buhari not to succumb to pressure by Akeredolu and the APC to renege in his resolve not to interfere in elections, as amply witnessed in the September 19 Edo election.

“We invite Mr President to note the applause and commendations coming to him from all parts of our nation and the global community over the non-interference of his Presidency in the conduct of Edo State election.

“For allowing a free, fair and credible election in Edo State, a development that allowed the will of the people to prevail.

“Mr President must not allow Akeredolu, who had been justly rejected by his people for non-performance and who has declared his citizens as his “enemies for life”, to detract from his desire in this regard.

“Our campaign, therefore, urges President Buhari to adopt the same Edo stance to ensure a free, fair and credible election in Ondo State, without regard to partisan consideration.

“This’s important so that he can leave a legacy of electoral uprightness for which posterity and history can be kind to him.

“We make this demand because it’s clear that the tide favours Eyitayo Jegede in this election.”
