Blame politicians for inconclusive elections — Akeredolu
The governorship aspirant of the APC in Ondo State, Barrister Rotimi Akeredolu, has said politicians are mainly to blame for the series of inconclusive elections being witnessed in the country.
Akeredolu said this yesterday in Abuja, after obtaining his governorship forms for expression of interest and nomination at the APC national secretariat.
“It (inconclusive elections) has been of concern to all of us. The blame is to all of us. Though in some instances, you can blame INEC, but, politicians are mainly to blame.
“Politicians prevent elections from being held in some areas. So, when there is fighting or violence, what do you want INEC to do? They have to consider the security of their personnel,” said Akeredolu, who is a former president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).
He, however, expressed optimism that the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State would not be declared inconclusive.
He also ruled out the possibility of losing the APC primary election and the subsequent governorship election.
