A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Lere Olayinka, has dismissed media report that there was tension in the party in the State over claim that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) purportedly uncovered flaws in the processes leading to the party’s 2020 congresses.
Olayinka, who described the report as handiwork of those hoping to get what they could not get through the congresses and their court cases, by peddling rumour and falsehoods, pointed out that there is no law in Nigeria that made it mandatory for INEC to monitor congress of a political party.
Speaking further, Olayinka said It is on record that those who were aggrieved over the conduct of the congresses duly exercised their rights to seek redress in accordance with the constitution of the PDP.
Their appeals at the relevant PDP Congress Appeal Panels however failed.
