APC Primary: I will not challenge Akeredolu in court- Kekemeke
One of the governorship aspirants in yesterday’s APC primary in ondo state, Hon Isaacs Kekemeke says he will not challenge the outcome of election in court.
He said he has accepted the outcome of the exercise with reservations.
In a press statement personally signed by him, Mr. Kekemeke said he would not move to another political party despite offers from the opposition parties.
He alleged that Akeredolu over used his power of incumbency to serve as both an umpire and a contestant during the primary.
The statement reads, “It is still my conviction that the process leading to the voting was slanted, skewed and compromised to produce a predetermined result.
“The advantages and opportunities that incumbency confer were overstretched to constitute the incumbent into both an umpire and a contestant.
“But then the delegates have spoken clearly and so be it. I wish the winner and our party well. ” I am satisfied that the Lekeleke movement, our platform for the campaign had been widely adjudged, acknowledged and applauded for running a decent, issue-based, knowledge-driven, strategically unique and inducement-free campaign locally, nationally and even internationally.
“And now, we will be relentless in our sensitization and education of our people that whatever government they have is their making. I have been approached by some persons and groups to run my aspiration on their platforms. Others have advised a challenge of the process in court.
“My answers; I remain in the All Progressives Congress and I shall not be going to court.
“I will however continue to insist that our Party, the APC must be a party for all its members and not just a party for a privileged few in positions of authority.
‘Finally, I wish to thank those few delegates who voted their conscience and for our pro-people Vision. My thanks goes to the Almighty God for everything, the thousands of members, supporters, admirers, fans of the Lekeleke movement; my inspiration.
