Any Primary Election Conducted In Lagos On Sunday Is A Sham,' Says PDP Reps Aspirant


| The Daily Crucible | Monday, May 23, 2022

House of Representatives hopeful, Mr Babatunde Aleshinloye-Williams has described the State house of assembly and house of Representatives primary elections conducted on Sunday at the Shomolu Secretariat of the People's Democratic Party, PDP in Lagos as illegal, fraudulent and a sham that can not stand.

Aleshinloye-Williams who is aspiring to represent Somolu Federal Constituency at the lower chamber of the National assembly, told his supporters to ignored fake result in circulation, saying the sham primaries should be disregarded in its entirety.

The politician made this known in a  statement while explaining that 'the Lagos State PDP had not only canceled the said primaries but urged the National working committee, NWC, of the party to re-schedule it'. 

According to him, "you can not build something on nothing. The Lagos State chapter of the PDP at a news conference had urged the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to cancel the House of Assembly and House of Representatives primaries slated for today (Sunday) in Lagos".

"This the Chairman of the Party, Mr Phillips Aivoji alongside other state executives, 5 governorship aspirants and party leaders said the ad-hoc delegates lists brought by the party's electoral committees for both primaries had been compromised," Aleshinloye-Williams said.

Mr Aleshinloye-Williams who noted that he was invited to the party Secretariat to discuss modalities for the election, where he had intended to call the LGA chairman's attention to the fact that the State executives had postponed the election, stated that he was shocked to see that the election was well on the way, and in fact almost completed. 

He said, the whole process amounts to nullity as he was not part of the electoral fraud which was against the directives of the Lagos State PDP, stressing that the whole process is null and void. 

The house of Representatives hopeful wondered how any legal primary election can be conducted without the proper delegates list and the national electoral committee, most especially when the state PDP had postponed the exercise. 

He said the exercise was fraudulent, illegal and a sham that must be disregarded, saying "the election never took place as far as he was concerned".

Aleshinloye-Williams urged his teeming supporters and party faithfuls to stay focus and wait for the State's directives on the  assembly and representatives primary elections.
