The All Progressives Congress (APC) has rejected the call by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the postponement of the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo.
The Makarfi led faction of the PDP on Saturday called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the election pending the outcome of a case before the Supreme Court.
But in a statement on Sunday signed by its National Secretary, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni, the APC described PDP’s request as “ridiculous”.
“The PDP cannot hold Ondo state and indeed the country hostage on account of its internal crisis.
“Instead of making the ridiculous election postponement request on INEC, the PDP should focus and redirect its energy towards putting its house in order,” the statement said.
The APC also said it “is not party to any scheme to subvert justice and undermine the very progressive and participatory democracy which the APC fiercely stands for”.
The party added, “A vote for the tested, trusted and credible APC governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN will bring about massive multi-faceted development which has eluded the state,” it said.
