One of the aspirants who contested last week’s House of Representatives’ primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ibadan North West / South West federal constituency, Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku, has alleged that the primaries was manipulated in favour of the winner, Hon. Saheed Akinade-Fijabi.
According to Ajanaku in a chat with OYO INSIGHT, he had won the primaries by two votes until a recount was ordered. “I was, however, surprised, how my opponent later led him with 20 votes.
Fijabi had after the keenly contested primaries which took place within the premises of Adamasingba Stadium, garnered 299 votes against Ajanaku’s 279 votes. There were 8 void votes.
The duo had contested the primaries alongside Honourables Folake Ogunkoya-Oshinowo, Rotimi Ajanaku, Yinka Gbolahan, Abiodun ikumogunniyi and Kehinde Subair.
Though he did not talk about his next line of action, the businessman and hotelier said he is still in the race.
