Ogun INEC office hell: PDP’s Aderinokun orders probe, production of new PVCs

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Senate candidate, Olumide Adirikonon, has demanded an investigation into the shooting attack on the office of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) in the South Abeokuta Local Government Area, Ogun State.

While expressing her shock over the incident, Adrenikon said the incident should not be swept under the rug as those behind the attack should be prosecuted.

In a statement, Adrenikon, his media assistant Tai Taiwo, condemned the attack on the IEC facility, and deplored the destruction of more than 60,000 permanent voter cards and other insensitive election materials, including ballot boxes and booths.

It is a barbaric act that must be condemned in all its forms. The burning of the IEC office in South Abeokuta is not just a threat to a credible election, but a threat to the security of life and property in the Ogun state capital.

“The attack should be a wake-up call for the security services to be resilient and assure the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) that their facilities and equipment are safe as well as for Nigerians, and that we can go out to vote next year without any fear of insecurity,” he said.

Senator Ogun Central asked the Ogun state government to expose who was behind the attack, saying that “the security situation of the state has become fragile, and everyone behind this attack should be prosecuted.”

While he was thanking God for no human casualties in Hell, Adrenikon encouraged the INC not to deter it from its commitment to holding free and fair elections in 2023.

“Evil agents have done their damage,” he pleaded, “but I urge the INC not to back down and respond by quickly tracking down the proliferation of destructive PVCs so that our people are not disenfranchised next year.”
