LG Elections: Why We Set Up Watchdog On Election Riggers- NNPP Chairman


The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has revealed that the party has set up watchdog on election riggers ahead of the forthcoming Local Government Elections in Ogun State.

Chairman of the party, Comrade Sunday Olaposi Oginni disclosed this during the party State Executive Council (SEC) meeting held in Abeokuta on Sunday.

In his speech, Comrade Oginni warned that the era of writing elections results in the state has gone, and that NNPP would resist any attempts by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its cohorts to rig the local government elections holding in July.

He added that all known and new elections riggers recruited by APC as well as in OGSIEC caught on and after the elections would be sent to prison, no matter how highly place or whom they might be in the society.

Oginni affirmed: “We are battle ready for Governor Dapo Abiodun administration on this forthcoming council elections, we have fought him before, and the council elections will not be the last. His attempt to turn the state to ‘One Party State’ will be resisted with all seriousness.

“Ogun State does not belong to one man, and the people have been caged for too long by APC government across the country. NNPP has come to set the good people of Ogun State free from the bondage of APC led government.

“We have it on record that what governor Abiodun did in Anambra State at the APC primary, whereby he helped in rigging result of the primary, he should not try it here in our state. Ogun State is different from Anambra State in all ramifications, and we have more enlightened people here in Ogun.

“We are going to write Inspector General of Police, Director of DSS and other security agencies to restrict governor Abiodun movement to his Iperu home, and not to allow him move across the state on the day of elections, in order to manipulate results.

“APC won’t win again in this state and in Nigeria because of the great afflictions the party has inflicted on the masses. Whoever that will vote for them must have be charmed and blindfolded. NNPP can’t be caged by them and OGSIEC.

“NNPP has mandated all its executive members and committee across the three senatorial districts to set up watchdog and monitor the election riggers in their units, wards, and local governments, and resist their pranks vehemently.
