An aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Saturday primary election of the party in Ondo North Senatorial District, Alex Ajipe has vowed to challenge the election before the Appeal Panel of the party.
The election won by Pastor Jide lpinsagba with 268 votes was rejected by Ajipe who scored 57 votes.
Ajipe, alleged that the primary election was conducted with fake delegates, noting that many of the delegates who voted at the primary were unknown members of the APC.
Addressing newsmen in Akure, Ajipe, therefore, called on the party to nullify the election and set up another in the interest of all aspirants involved.
Ajipe described the process as a mockery of what normal primary election should be.
The APC stalwart, who came second with 57 votes alleged that the primary election was marred with malpractices and irregularities as leadership of the party denied three out of the four aspirants access to the delegates lists and later changed the lists at the eleventh hour to the primary election.
According to Ajipe, strange markets women and traders were presented to them as delegates, a development he described as ridiculous to a democratic process.
