One of the governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirants, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, has raised an alarm over the collection and retention of the party’s Delegates’ Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and party’s membership card (PMC).
Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation, (EJCO) in a release signed by his spokesperson, Mr Gbenga Akinmoyo ,alleged that the collection of the PVCs and PMCs was going on in some locations across the state.
“This is a serious cause for concern, that with less than three days to the Ondo State governorship primary elections some people have embarked on the collection and retention of PVCs and PMCs which it said is presently going-on in Ikare Local Government and several locations across the state .
“We are most surprised that the Ondo State chapter of the PDP has not instructed all aspirants that delegates are required to submit their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) and Party Membership Cards (PMC) at any time before the primaries which is scheduled for July 22, 2020.
“ While we have every confidence in the leadership of the PDP at the national and state levels to provide a level-playing field for all aspirants and to guarantee a free, fair and credible primary election, we doubt this could have been a mere oversight.
“While awaiting an official statement from the party, we take this opportunity to inform particularly our delegates and all party faithful, that as we have not been informed of such procedural requirement.
We therefore instruct that you do not release these crucial forms of identification to anybody and do not fall victim of such antics.
