Osun Election: APC accuses new police commissioner of bribing for PDP

Osun Mega Rally for Aregbesola's Re-election

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused the new Police Commissioner in Osun State, of distributing cash to police personnel and soldiers so they can work to give the PDP victory in Saturday’s governorship election in the State.

In a statement issued in Osogbo on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said Maishanu distributed the money after addressing the police personnel and soldiers at the NYSC camp in Ede on Friday, during which he told them point blank that his mission is to ensure PDP’s victory at the elections.

It said the new police boss gave every police officer present N50,000; other ranks N30,000 each and every non-commissioned soldier N45,000.

”We salute the courage and patriotism of some security agents who gave us this valuable information, and who have vowed never to do  anything to subvert the country’s constitution and its democracy, whether or not they are being lured to do so with filthy lucre.

”The fact that there are still good men and women even in the security agencies that have become highly-partisan gives us hope that our country’s democracy will survive this unprecedented assault from those who swore an oath to uphold the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” APC said.

The party wondered where the Police Commissioner got the huge amounts of cash he gave away so casually in order to use security agencies to thwart the will of the people.

It said even as the police boss was sharing out the money in Ede, Chris Uba, a hireling of the PDP, was setting down in Osogbo with the 50 troops he was given from Enugu with the mission to use the result sheets already given to him to manipulate the results of the election, as well as to harass and brutalize any APC member who would not let the PDP carry out its rigging plan, earlier exposed by the APC, during Saturday’s election.

”Where else in the world will the government give a man who is not in the military 50 troops to command, for the purpose of rigging an election? It is now very clear that the PDP’s desperation to win at all cost in Osun is right from the top! Now, neither the Chief of Army Staff nor the Inspector General of Police can exonerate themselves from the PDP’s rigging manual.

”And of course the man behind all this is President Goodluck Jonathan, who keeps assuring the international community of his commitment to free and fair elections even as he continues to lead the process of subverting credible polls. After all, the President is responsible for the conduct of all public officials appointed by him.

The party said those who are colluding with the desperate PDP to subvert democracy today must realize that power is transient, and that in the fullness of time, everyone will account for his or her actions.

”Today we may be in opposition, but that position itself is not permanent. This is why we have consistently fought for our nation’s democracy to survive. We remain confident that with the support of Nigerians, the PDP’s evil machination, whether in Osun or anywhere else, will fail,” it said.

      If all Nigerians are going to get are lies as campaign materials, then it is no wonder the APC lost the Ekiti elections, because while the party BUSIES itself with lies and noise, the PDP is busy on ground doing the needful and sensitizing voters to its agenda. In it all, the APC is depicted as an insincere and fraudulent party, because the y one thing and do a different thing-were these not the same policemen and women who cried out yesterday that they were moved to Osun state from Lagos without adequate financial preparation for their upkeep? Now the same policemen are saying they are being bribed by Government?

        Mr pls just keep quiet. This is a serious matter pertaining to the credibility of the election. You are in the forum saying trash. I was wondering which part of the planet you came from that you couldn’t reason for once.

          APC dictators in the mold of the Lie -In-Chief Bola Tinubu. They cannot tolerate the views of others. They are fake democrats.

    “NBA-EWG noted that there had been campaigns of calumny among parties and candidates, and that bickering, mud-slinging and character assassination as opposed to issue based campaigns, had become the order of the day. Mud-slinging and character assassination is certainly not the path to credible and rancour-free election” Good observation NBA-EWG. APC is an evil party. Looser always complaining. Osun people say no to evil and vote wisely tomorrow as Ondo and Ekiti did.

    It was Oyinlola who could not see the future that awaited him because he is a mere mortal that once declared concerning Tinubu: “Everything about Bola Tinubu is fake; his name is fake; his mother is fake; his place of birth is fake. For the sake of what he stands to gain, he abandoned his parents in Iragbiji, Osun State.”
