    The Osun State Governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke, has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against allowing the All Progressives Congress to tamper with election materials used for the July 16 governorship election.

    Naija News reports that Adeleke gave the warning in a statement on Tuesday signed by the Chairman of his Media Management Team, Prince Diran Odeyemi, in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

    In the statement, Adeleke claimed that the APC was working with INEC to tamper with some electoral materials that would be used against Adeleke’s victory at the Election Petition Tribunal.

    He alleged that some APC leaders had been moving around the local government offices of the commission to liaise with the INEC officials in order to tamper with some election materials kept in their custody.

    Adeleke called on the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to direct the commission’s officials in Osun to submit all electoral materials to the state headquarters.

    The statement read in part, “There is rumour milling around the state that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress are romancing the INEC to tamper with some electoral materials that could be used against the victory of the governor-elect in their alleged proposed brief at the Election Petition Tribunal.

    “Some APC leaders have been moving around local government offices of the commission to liaise with the INEC officials to tamper with some of the Electoral Materials in their custody.

    “Senator Adeleke called on the INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, to call his officials in Osun State to order so as to prevent them from perpetrating the dastardly act.”

    Responding to the allegation, Media Adviser to the APC chairman in Osun State, Kola Olabisi challenged Adeleke and the PDP to prove their allegation against the APC.

    He said, “They said they have won the election, yet they are still afraid. That means they have skeletons in their wardrobe. They are just ranting. They should prove their allegation or stop ranting. They are afraid of their shadow.”
