Olufemi Ajadi, the New Nigeria Peoples Party’s candidate for governor in Ogun State, has warned that the party will file a lawsuit against the Independent National Election Commission for failing to include the party’s name on the ballots.
Ajadi voiced concern that only the party’s logo was on the ballot paper, but the name was glaringly absent, shortly after casting his vote at Ofada in the state’s Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area.
We can’t always see security, Ajadi remarked. The APC gathered goons to attack me in my voting unit. I’m very bummed out.
“They were hauling firearms with my security. This is not a voting process.
“I am unable to see my party, the NNPP, on the ballot paper. After the initial election, we sent a letter to INEC requesting changes.
“Now, only the logo of our party may be found on the ballot. It’s very depressing.
“With the grace of God, we are proceeding to court to contest INEC’s decision to leave our party’s name off the ballot.
He said, “I don’t have confidence in INEC,” when asked if he trusted INEC. Nigerians are upset with them. It is utterly disappointing.
