The governorship candidate of New Nigeria Peoples Party in Ogun State, Olufemi Ajadi, has vowed to initiate legal actions against the Independent National Electoral Commission for omitting the party’s name on the ballot papers.
Ajadi who spoke shortly after he cast his votes at Ofada, in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state on Saturday, expressed worry that only the party’s logo was on the ballot paper, but the name was conspicuously missing.
He also alleged vote buying and harassment during the election across the state.
Ajadi said, “We can’t see security everywhere. In my polling unit, APC gathered thugs to attack me. I’m so disappointed.
“They were dragging guns with my security. This is not an election.
“On the ballot paper, I can’t see my party, NNPP. We wrote to INEC to make amendment after the initial election.
“Today, we can’t find our party’s name on the ballot paper, only the logo. It’s so disappointing.
“By the grace of God, we are going to Court to challenge INEC on why our party’s name was omitted on the ballot paper.”
Asked if he has confidence in INEC, he responded: “I don’t have confidence in INEC. They have disappointed Nigerians. It’s a total disappointment.”
