The House of Representatives candidate for Akure South and North under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party’s ( PDP), Mr. Ifedayo Omolafe has expressed optimism that his party Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will defeat the incumbent come 2019 elections.
Speaking with The Hope in Akure at the weekend, Omolafe disclosed that his party was already putting up adequate measures to prevent rigging of the election in favour of the incumbent.
“Atiku will win the election because he is prepared for the office. It is not the money they share during the election that works, it is their perfection at the INEC , it won’t work next year. We are strategising to curb rigging. We will monitor our votes from the polling units to INEC”, he said.
He therefore advised the electorate to keep calm during the election and avoid violence but rather cast their votes for their preferred candidate with the hope that it will be counted.
Omolafe assured the people of his constituency that he would not let them down if elected.
He noted that he had been representating his people on several political offices , saying his previous performances will speak during the election.
He added that he had never disappointed his people in every responsibility he had been saddled with and reassured them of his readiness to perform better and put more smiles on the faces of his people.
Omolafe thanked God for making the INEC list, and also appreciated the delegates for the confidence reposed in him by voting him and for the cooperation of other aspirants for giving room for peace and orderliness during and after the primary elections.
