Ondo AC backs Tinubu on flawless democracy

The Ondo State chapter of the Action Congress (AC) at the weekend criticized the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members calling for the arrest of its leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The Ondo State chapter of the Action Congress (AC) at the weekend criticized the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members calling for the arrest of its leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The former Lagos State Governor last Friday in Ila-Orangun, Osun State admonished election riggers against subverting the will of the electorate, particularly in 2011 election.

The AC leader spoke at the 70th birthday of the Party's National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande where he warned that the past experience of 2003 and 2007 electoral manipulations would not be tolerated again in the history of future democracy in the country.

In a statement issued yesterday in Akure and signed by the Ondo State Chairman of the party, Mr. Sola Iji described Tinubu as a dogged fighter for the survival of democracy and rule of law in Nigeria .

This exceptional trait, the statement noted "affords' the former governor the nationalistic courage to ensure that the jaundiced electoral process is reformed and people's votes count in every election.

Iji maintained that but for the fellow progressives of Tinubu and Akande, the nation would have turned into "Banana Republic" because of the undemocratic nature of the ruling PDP leaders.

The statement supported Tinubu's determination to join other patriotic Nigerians to make the 2007 general elections the last that vote robbers would have a field day.

It particularly noted with dismay the day light robbery witnessed in Ondo state during the April 14, 2007 governorship election when a combined team of INEC officials, PDP and some law enforcement agents robbed the people of their mandate.
