Group Denies Call To Annul Osun Polls
THE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Justice and Equity Organisation (JEO), Mr. Tunde Bafunsho, has disassociated the group from the alleged call for the Osun State governorship election’s cancellation.
Bafunsho said one Mr. James Okoronkwo, who allegedly led a media conference where the demand for the cancellation was made, was “not a member of his organisation and hence cannot represent the organisation in any way, form or manner.”
The right activist, in a statement yesterday, cautioned the media on activities of alleged impostors.
The statement said: “Imposters will do anything to jeopardise the efforts of Nigerians, the Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the people of Osun State who came out to vote for the governor of their choice.”
Bafunsho stated that the election that was praised by the Federal Government and Nigerians as well as conducted with huge sum of money with the support of security agencies “cannot be overruled by the selfishness of one man.”
He pleaded with the citizens “to join hands together to ensure a smooth transition,” as the country moves towards 2015 election.
JEO is a member of coalition of civil society organisations in the country.
