ACN, PDP allege violence planned for judgment day

By GBENGA ARIYIBI

ADO EKITI — Both the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN,  and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are accusing each other of alleged plans to cause mayhem on May 31.

The day coincides with the date the Supreme Court had earlier slated for judgement on the case instituted by the former governor of the state, Mr. Segun Oni over the 2009 governorship election re-run in the state.

Oni is praying  the apex court to reverse  his removal from office, alleging that the 2010 judgment of the Court of Appeal in the case  was in violation of the law.

The PDP, Ekiti State chapter, has raised an alarm that the ACN was planning to cause mayhem on March 31, 2013.

The party, therefore, urged both the police and the Department of State Service, DSS, to investigate leadership of the ACN in the state.

Briefing newsmen in Ado Ekiti,  yesterday, the PDP Director of Communications, Mr. Gboyega Aribisogan, said the leadership of the ACN should be investigated and be made to assist security operatives on the allegation.
