INEC should declare Adeleke winner of Osun election-David Mark

Senator David Mark Former President of the Senate and Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Senator David Mark,
has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
to do the needful by declaring Senator Ademola Adeleke winner of
the last Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State.
Reacting to the development through a press release signed by his
media assistant, Mr Paul Mumeh in Abuja yesterday, Senator Mark
said it is incontrovertible that results announced by the electoral
umpire showed that Adeleke of the PDP scored the majority of the
lawful votes cast.
Senator Mark said, “The declaration of the election by INEC as
inconclusive is setting a dangerous precedence and ultimately a
threat to democracy.”
He maintained that the election complied with all known electoral
guidelines and was therefore conclusive arguing that the only
logical thing to do is to declare Adeleke the winner forthwith.
According to Mark, “INEC should demonstrate its independence.
This twist is an affront to the good people of Osun State and
Nigerians whose wishes are being manipulated.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) must accept the result of the
Osun governorship election. This antics of changing the rules of
the game when it does not favour them is a dangerous
phenomenon and a serious threat to democracy.
“Our party, the PDP has been law abiding. We have always
complied even in extreme and glaring cases of infractions against
us. I expect the APC to lead by example and accept the verdict of
the Osun election as expressed by majority of Osun people.”
Senator Mark, however, told PDP faithful to remain calm and law
abiding believing that justice will prevail in Osun gubernatorial
election.
