PDP faults Tinubu for barring intending contestants

Bola-Tinubu

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has faulted the alleged attempt by the leader of opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to bar some persons from contesting the Ekiti State governorship election coming up next year.

In a statement by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Tony Caesar Okeke, the party said it was extremely “wicked and undemocratic” for Tinubu to order a House of Representatives member from the state, Opeyemi Bamidele, to forget his governorship ambition, adding that such a move smacks of tyranny and outright disdain for democracy.

This followed Wednesday’s endorsement of Governor Kayode Fayemi for a second term by the national leadership of the ACN, who tasked Fayemi to unite all aggrieved party members, warning of dangers should he go to the polls without a united house. [The Guardian Nigeria]
