How PDP plans to rig Osun Election – APC

Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola

“The document also contains the number of pre-allotted votes for each local government to make up the number of 406,116, which the PDP has pre-allotted to itself.”

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has uncovered the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s manual to rig Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State, complete with projected fake results in all the 30 local government areas of the state.

At a press conference in Osogbo on Thursday, APC Chairman John Odigie Oyegun, said the rigging plans were contained in two documents prepared by the PDP in Osun, and which are now in the possession of the APC.

The first is a ‘secret’ document marked ”HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL” that contains a meticulous outline of plans to rig the election, polling unit by polling unit, using pre-programmed ballot papers already designed and thumb printed with vanishing ink in favor of PDP.

The second document, entitled ”Task Force: Operation (PDP) takeover of Osun”, lists the actions to be taken at most of the 30 Local Government Areas in the state, including thuggery, snatching of ballot boxes and instigation of violent clashes, the PDP members to coordinate the recommended actions and the APC members to be arrested to pave the way for such actions.

The party said the ‘secret’ document further contains the plan to deploy specified numbers of impression ballot papers and vanishing ink in 1,195 polling units across 155 wards in all Local Government Areas of Osun State, in addition to a plan to de-register 47,000 voters, whose Voters Identification Numbers have been illegally acquired so they won’t find their names on the voters register on election day.

It said the document also contains the number of pre-allotted votes for each local government to make up the number of 406,116, which the PDP has pre-allotted to itself even before the commencement of voting!

APC gave the breakdown of the self-allotted figures, as contained in the document, as follows: Atakumosa East (10,000); Atakumosa West (10,000), Ayedaade (15,000), Ayedire (10,000), Boluwaduro (5,000); Boripe (10,000); Ede North (10,130); Ede South (10,000); Egbedore (10,000); Ejigbo (15,000); Ife Central (35,000); Ifedayo (7,000); Ife East (33,018); Ifelodun (15,000) and Ife North (20,000).

Others listed in the rigging document are: Ife South (20,000); Ila (10,000); Ilesa East (10,000); Ilesa West (10,340); Irepodun (10,007); Irewole (20,105); Isokan (10,000); Iwo (15,000); Obokun (10,203); Odo-Otin (10,107); Ola-Oluwa (5,070); Olorunda (15,000); Oriade (10,000); Orolu (7,936 and Osogbo (28,000).

The party said the elaborate and audacious plan is to be carried out in connivance with key INEC officials from the National headquarters, and those deployed from other states, with the staunch backing of all security agencies deployed for the election, with particularly-mobilised personnel, former militants and masked thugs impersonating security officials under a combined team code named ‘Election Task Force’, directly under the instructions of Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro (Minister of State for Defence) and Jelili Adesiyan (Minister of Police Affairs), Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode and Mr. Chris Uba.

It said the mandate of the task force includes the intimidation, harassment, and arrest of APC party chieftains, agents and sympathizers who are uncompromising or refuse their offer of filthy lucre.

APC said the second document, a part of which was written in longhand, contained even more damning evidence that the PDP has decided to employ rigging, thuggery and other acts of violence to ‘win’ Osun at all costs on Saturday.

For example, the party said, the document lists members of the ‘Omisore Youth Forum’ who must be supported with the deployment of a ‘Strike Force” to foment trouble on election day. The members are Adedotun Adebowale (alias Marcel), Kingsley Awosiyan, Muyiwa Odikunrin, Wale Ojo, Kola Oladipupo and Kako Banji.

The PDP members to be provided with ‘Strike Force’ to enable them disrupt voting, stuff ballot boxes or snatch ballot papers were listed as Halif A. Adeniran from Isokan Ward 10; Blessing Ikeaba (Ilesa West); Sunday Akanfe Atidade (Ede South, Kuge Ward 2); Shaibu Oyedokun (Ede South, Ward 10 and 11); Bode Falade (Ejigbo Ward 2); Raji Kayode (Ejigbo Ward 5) and Lasisi Gambia (Iwo, Oke Adan Ward 2).

Also, APC members to be arrested include Moshood Abdulahi, Akorede Lawal and Basiru Awobode (Isokan Ward 3); Femi Fasoro, Lanre Abu, Taiye Alapa, Seyi Elese and Taye Johnson (Ilesa West); Dele Nafui (Ayedire); Peter Babalola (Irewole) as well as Ramah Ajiboye, Johnson Ojo, Adedeji Soji and Alimi Kajogbola (Ede South).

APC said actions to be taken to swing the election in favour of the PDP were also listed in the various Local Government Areas, including Ife Central (stuffing of ballot boxes, thuggery and physical clashes); Atakumosa East (Multiple voting, thuggery and ballot stuffing); Ife North (Electoral Violence); Ayedaade (Electoral violence and rigging); Egbedore (Snatching of ballot boxes and ballot papers) and Ede South (Snatching of ballot boxes). In the LGAs, the thugs in charge of the designated evil assignment and the APC members to be arrested were also listed.

Meanwhile, the party has said it is not true that the military command is unaware of the plan to use soldiers to rig the Osun election, as 38 army officers were dispatched to Osun on Wednesday and were part of the team that disrupted the rally that was to be held in Osogbo by the NLC in support of Gov. Aregbesola.

Also, it said that Chris Uba has been given 50 soldiers from Enugu, which he would lead to Osun for one mission and one mission only: Brutalize, intimidate or kill any APC supporter who wants to prevent PDP’s rigging. One wonders when Uba joined the army that he has now become a military commander!

APC said the outlined rigging plans explain why the PDP has been boasting repeatedly that it would capture Osun, having successfully executed similar plans in Delta Senatorial, Anambra governorship and Ekiti governorship elections.

”All these point to the fact that PDP’s devilish plans to destroy our nascent democracy would stop at nothing to achieve its aim. We hereby put all stakeholders on red alert. We call on Prof. Attahiru Jega to ensure that his name does not go down in infamy as some others have.

”We also call on the new IGP and other security agents to show to Nigerians that they are truly professional men and women of honour. We appeal to all Nigerians and particularly the Osun electorates to be extra vigilant and ensure that their will is not subverted by this on-rushing brigade of evil,” the party said, vowing to put all machinery in place to safeguard the mandate of its teeming supporters and resist all forms of intimidation or devilish manipulation of the voting process.

APC said it is confident that, in the end, millions of soldiers, police and other security agents are not enough to take on the people and crush their will, much as they will try to.

        Try to be reason once in a life time. The best answer for you is just keep quiet if you don’t have any meaningful thing to contribute. This allegation is not about your state image, but image of us a country.

        • Wähala

          He never has anything meaningful to contribute, his tactics is diversionary and he never keeps quiet for once in his life. Other news outlets however, have silenced him with a moratorium/gag eith a “persona-non-grata” declaration, only PT continues to allow his excesses. His reason for life is crumbs, just his stomach infrastructure matters. The allegation is not about Tinubu but see where he takes the ball to… Sharia Law, ethno-religious demarcation and their Ijaw regional presidency, the specialties of a darkened Soul. Amoral to the cure… He’s a Zulu-zombie! Our Aborigines !!!

    If true,people behind such planned large scale electoral malpractice will forever be doomed on this earth and the hereafter.wonder why such planning cannot be focused on all the myriad of problems facing this country. the guys currently running our federal government are obviously intellectually lazy.

    • redeem

      Same old APC propaganda——————-
      (“Omisore remains innocent while every other Nigerian yet to be investigated is a suspect. It amounts to contempt if anybody or persons links SENATOR Omisore with the case again unless such a person wishes to malign the judiciary”.While stressing that “Nigerians are enlightened and have become accustomed to the propaganda machinery and misleading information from the All Progressive Congress (APC), Olaoluwa challenged Senator Bola Tinubu, Governor Aregbesola and their cohorts to publish the first statement of Muyiwa Ige, at the police station consequent upon the death of Chief Ige”.He said in the said statement, Muyiwa gave as suspects people linked with the Ijebu Igbo caucus where Tinubu was a key PLAYER and Aregbesola a political supporter.)

      • Bunduma Mohammed

        This is detail explaination of how clueless GEJ, a drunken fisherman want to continue taking Nigerians for a ride. He would soon die like Abacha because we are praying for God to deliver us from his misrule and surely God would answer our prayer.

        • redeem

          Look at the callous words u use in describing the president —and praying for him to die———its yr awooof oil revenue family that will be buried–b4 him—Sharia reporters ati PT– will not ban the likes of u–They allow u to post this rubbish–but when we challenge u–ours are blacklisted—-yet u say the press is free in 9ja-ko? -freedom of expression-abi–but deri ati redeem is not–free to post his comments—–animals

          ——————We find in this statement (by APC) the height of hypocrisy, especially as it is incontrovertible that it was the Osun APC governor who, in a letter DATED July 4, 2014 and addressed to the Director General of the DSS, requested for the deployment ‘for the purpose of security and general protection ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in Osun state’ and ‘to help secure peace and make the election hitch free, as security is beefed up for the election.’

          “It is therefore shocking and utterly despicable for the APC to turn round to point accusingFINGERS at the PDP and the Presidency when the DSS officials arrived and commenced their duties in line with the request of the governor. While Nigerians have continued to express shock over this act of deception, we in the PDP ask; is it a question of APC dishing out statements without cross-checking internally? Or is it a question of the party adopting lies, deceit and propaganda as ideology?

          • Wähala

            30,000 Nigerians have died under Dr. Dumbo, how many died during Abacha’s tyranny? Just pray it doesn’t come to that but history cannot be ignored. As someone has been telling you: 99 days for the tyrant, one day for the terrorist… translation: the terrorist has only to succeed once! They will get Dumbo now or after 2015… no doubt! Think of ISIS in Iraq. Disgruntled military ati political personnel joined the insurgency and are now taking large swats of Iraqi land, same will happen in Naija and you can bookmark this comment. Olodo. I will keep reminding you, fooolu. Drunkard!

      • Ijeuwa

        redeem, aka wendel simlin, aka reno omokiri the forger. 99 days for the thief… ha ha ha!

        • Tunde

          Prove him wrong and ask Tinubu to publish the said statement.

          • Ijeuwa

            Ha ha ha! I just saw your reply. I don’t know what the guy writes. I’ve better things to do with my time. I know he’s all over the place, so when I’ve some minutes to spare, I let him know that some ppl know… I don’t need to read the contents of his posts. The name says it all. It’s all too predictable!!!!

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    Shame on Jega to be part of this devilish acts of pdp. PDP has lost Osun since there plan has been leaked. How could PDP take Nigerians for granted like this. I support an Arab spring if pdp continue this nonsense.

    We find in this statement (by APC) the height of hypocrisy, especially as it is incontrovertible that it was the Osun APC governor who, in a letter DATED July 4, 2014 and addressed to the Director General of the DSS, requested for the deployment ‘for the purpose of security and general protection ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in Osun state’ and ‘to help secure peace and make the election hitch free, as security is beefed up for the election.’

    • Gbo_lee

      What I find “shocking and utterly despicable” is your selfish disregard for these allegations. What is important to me now is for these allegations to be taken seriously by security agents and investigated. If the APC fabricated this, they can be made to pay but the silence of the PDP and security forces is eye raising really. The APC should continue to nform the public of such negative plans, the people would be the biggest defence against such opression in the end.

      • john micheals

        This trash is too calculated to be a plan, who would plan evil out loud ? its a propaganda.

        • Tunde

          Yes. Because you have a blocked brain!

          • john micheals

            grow up.

      • ‘ned

        Chief, when these same security agens were first deployed in Edo State, Adams and ACN said they will reject the outcome of the election. When the result was released and ACN won, they did not reject it. Instead Adams praised Jona for a job well done and how the military was professional in conduct cos they even arrested PDP thugs and money bags who defied their party instruction as per moving around.

        You need to think for yourself when you read anything posited by another even by me. How will PDP predetermine the number of people that will turn up on election day for accreditation in each ward so that the thumb printed material will match exactly those accredited? How will they know the number of invalid votes and know the number of valid votes cast?

        When the allegation of moving thumb printed materials through CBN and given to market women at the rate of 10 ballot papers per a woman and ten women per polling booth was made, questions were asked as to how 100 votes per polling booth by PDP will be smuggled in and the same number of voided votes be removed in the full spectre of voters who watched the accreditation, voting, and counting, In full public glare!

        Our lack of a rational mind and logical thought process is what is despicable. That is why we are deceived both by PDP and APC. A man makes allegation that to sane and rational minds is baloney and we go to town with it. Are we okay upstairs?

  • Gbo_lee

    The desperation shown by the Jonathan inspired, and Obanikoro run, PDP in the South West is really sad. Let the people’s will reign for once PDP. Bribing your way into offices is not always going to work, it did in Adamawa partly, and failed in Nasarawa but they haven’t learnt. Whatever plans they employ, the people of Osun already made a statement at that rally for Aregbesola in Oshogbo. I don’t see a way for thuggery to succeed in this. Let the PDP learn.

  • babaj

    Chief Oyegun, I think your write up is not convincing. You are telling Nigerians that some body sat down and write how he is going to rig an election? Haba, Chief, is that how you rig election in Edo state when you were elected governor? The letter to me is a smoke screen to inform the general public that if you lose, there was rigging and if you win, there is no rigging. Politicians. They are all the same. My advise to you and your party is to prepare and mobilize your party to win the Saturday elections. You will surely not get any sympathy for your write up. For those who believe what Our Senior/Chief is talking will believe Ebola virus originated from Nigeria.

  • john micheals

    Haba, even if the PDP plans to rig, the APC will have full and substantive details like this ? We are no Kids nah !

  • peter

    This is Pure Comedy. APC can never change. All Propaganda Congress. This is purely laughable. The quality of opposition the PDP has makes it easy for them to be win, the APC do not cover themselves with glory with stuffs like this. I am ashamed to think they will be a suitable challenger but with allegations like this their credibility will be questioned. Any ways we will look out for what they have said and if it turns out to be lies, they will have shot themselves on the foot.

  • Tunde

    PREMIUM TIMES has become an arm of the APC. This medium now help the APC to spread its lies. This is the begining of loss of credibility for this medium. How come you guys do not have a copy of the document? Why did you not ask the APC to produce proof of its allegations? You just rush to help propagate falsehood? You have become part and parcel of those destroying Nigeria. What kind of journalism is this? This is really disgraceful!

  • kenny

    May I ask the contributors if any of them lives in Osun? If not, any contribution is just theory and not reality. With what I saw this morning and at the moment, it is very possible. I challenge you to go out and see things for yourself. If you are not in Osun kindly keep your unrealistic comment. it is more than what you think. let’s face the reality.
