Suspend LG Elections – Alao-Akala urges Makinde, OYSIEC

Prominent All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain and former Oyo State governor; Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, has called on the Oyo state Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) and the current Oyo state governor; Engr. Seyi Makinde to postpone the May 22 local government election in the state, saying that such moves will protect the sanctity of the nation’s developing democracy and also accommodate the APC in the election.

Chief Alao-Akala said this while reacting to the Supreme Court ruling regarding the legitimacy of the ALGON case brought to the court.

“Going on with the local Government election as earlier scheduled will throw the state into another round of legal gymnastics.

“My advice to him is to sit down with the OYSIEC officials, look in to the new development and do the needful which is to shift the election date. Fortunately, the Oyo state Independent Electoral Commission chairman is a learned fellow. He knows what the law says as disenfranchisement, he knows what the constitution says about holding elections and he knows the consequences of holding a one-sided election.”

“Apart from that, both the Governor and the OYSIEC chairman have a name to protect.

“This is an opportunity for Engr. Seyi Makinde to correct his past mistake.

“He should not commit another blunder by going on with that election which hundred percent certain will be faulted again by the judiciary”.
