This accusation is coming after reports emerged that Tunji Light-Ariyo, a known chieftain of the APC, was recorded campaigning on behalf of and canvassing for votes for the APC candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu, at PUs 28, 29, and 30 in Ward 2 of Akure South Local Government Area, in spite of the prohibition of such actions by the Electoral Act 2010.

In a statement issued by its spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, the PDP said:

 “The recording of this event also clearly show several police officers and men of other security agencies standing by and doing nothing while this was going on.

“In fact the video shows that the police men were providing security cover for him.”

In the same vein, the Punch quoted the Deputy Governor of Ondo, Mr. Lasisi Oluboyo as accusing the APC of  wooing the voters with money in the ongoing state governorship election.

He said, ” In my area here and with the report I have got so far, the election has been going on smoothly, no violence in our domain here, the turnout has been impressive.
