The immediate past National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Presidential aspirant, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, has commended the security agencies for being professionals in the handling of the Saturday governorship election in Osun State.
“Even though there is a lot more improvement needed, I commend the security agencies for being, for the large part, professional in their handling of the Osun election.”
“This is not to say, that they were perfect; but at least the level of impunity and brazen partiality was relatively less than experienced in previous exercises.”
In a statement signed by his spokesman, Muktar Sirajo, the PDP Presidential aspirant congratulated the people of Osun State for the orderly and peaceful manner they conducted themselves during the inconclusive gubernatorial election.
He called on the security agencies as well as the INEC to improve more to inspire greater confidence in the voters, as well as the larger national and international communities.
He appealed to the members and supporters of PDP in the State, especially in those areas where elections are to be repeated, to remain resolute and steadfast by coming out in larger numbers to inflict maximum damage on APC.
He also asked the people of Osun State to be a little patient as their seven years sufferings will soon be over despite delay.
