“Osun Rerun Outcome Shows Buhari Won’t Leave Power If Defeated” …PDP Boss, Secondus


The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the result of the Osun State governorship election concluded in a rerun on Thursday.

Secondus, who spoke with newsmen at the end of the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting held in Abuja, described the rerun as a charade, adding it was a black day for democracy.

The PDP chairman also expressed fears that President Muhammadu Buhari may refuse to handover power to the opposition if he is defeated in the 2019 general elections.

“What we have witnessed in Osun shows clearly that APC is not ready for election and we are afraid that Buhari will not handover if he loses election next year.

“We are sad that if this is what is going to take place in 2019, then the future of Nigeria’s democracy is bleak and we are sliding into crisis. If they like they can call it a hate speech but the fact must be told,” he said.
