Ondo State Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) chieftain Mr. Tunde Imolehin has warned the Federal Government and the ruling Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) against interfering in the activities of the electoral commission. He said the allegation that they were making moves to prevent the registration of the All Progressive Congress (APC) was worrisome.
Imolehin said that the merger of progressive parties would strengthen democracy and good governance because there will be a viable opposition after the merger.
The politician who spoke in Akure said the days of the PDP in power were numbered.
He added: “Even, the progressives in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) know that a merger is the only option now because of its collateral strength. APC will come alive, especially when it is supported by many progressive governors who are party leaders in their respective states.”
Imolehin lamented the poor state of the economy, pointing out that the woes have been aggravated by corruption.
He said the situation in Ondo State mirrored the ineptitude at the centre, urging the people of the state to take their destiny in their hands.
Imolehin added: “The last governorship election was full of irregularities. ACN did not loose that poll. Its third position was premeditated, but with the proceedings at the tribunal, the party will triumph because there was a precedence”.
