Osun LG election: Obokun APC members protest alleged manipulation of primary


Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Obokun East Local Council Development Area of Osun State have staged protest over the outcome of the party’s primary election ahead of the local government polls.

The protesting Osun APC members, on Monday, stormed the former IleriOluwa campaign headquarters of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to register their grievances.

The aggrieved members alleged that the winner of the APC chairmanship primary election in the council was a candidate that was planted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Adeleke Oluwole, one of the protesters, said that the protest was to register their grievance over the APC local government chairmanship primary which was contested between Bamidele Saliu Bello and Abiodun Owoeye.

Oluwole maintained that Bamidele Bello, the current chairman of Obokun East LCDA won the primary due to his antecedent in office.
