Six days to the Ondo State Governorship Election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed calls for the postponement of the election.
This is coming on the heels of calls by the Markafi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the postponement of the election over ongoing legal battles to determine the rightful candidate of the party.
INEC said it is going ahead with the scheduled election because there was no justification for postponement.
Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of the Commission, Rotimi Oyekanmi in an interview with The Guardian, said: INEC is not contemplating a postponement, as the attendant conflicts in the build up to the election in the state are strictly the party’s affair and not that of the electoral umpire.
