This is coming on the back of criticism and rejection by the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the request made by a faction of the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Electoral Body to postpone the governorship election in the state – which is to be held on Saturday.

The PDP had cited its internal crisis as the reason for the request, however, the APC stated that the PDP cannot hold the people of Ondo state and the entire country as ‘hostage’ on account of its internal crisis.
