Ondo 2016: Boroffice makes u-turn, seeks cancellation of Ondo APC primary

By Samuel Faleye, Akure

An aspirant for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket, Senator Ajayi Boroffice has demanded for the cancellation of the just concluded governorship primary election in Ondo State.

This is coming just as a member of the House of Representatives, Babatunde Kolawole said the election was characterised by malpractice.

The duo spoke at a reception rally organised by Kolawole at the palace of Olubaka of Oka-Akoko in Akoko South West Local Government, Oba Adebori Adeleye.

Addressing scores of indigenes that gathered at the event, Borrofice said he was informed that those who were not delegates voted in the party’s primary election.

He said if the committee finds out the allegation to be true, he is expecting a total cancellation of the exercise.

He said “Before the conclusion of the election, I kept hearing the rumour that the delegate list has been infiltrated

“That there are even some people who are not accredited, who are not even delegates but were given tags and induced to come and vote. And that has been substantiated now and it’s unfortunate.

“I am in support of total cancellation of the election, we must do it again” Borrofice said.

When asked whether he will contest under another party if the primary election result is not cancelled, the lawmaker said he will not leave the APC under any condition.

He said ” I am a loyal party man, I had the opportunity to leave the party in 2012 but I didn’t. I was one of the three people that remained then, among the aspirants

“I am not in this party to be a governor. I am in this progressive party to help build Nigeria

” And if don’t become governor, another person will be a governor, as long as the process is free, fair and credible” He said

Kolawole said the senator has just returned from a battle field and they are happy he returned safety despite all the odd against.

The lawmaker commended the national leader of APC, Asiwaju Ahmed for ensuring the party remain united.
