Oyo State Governor, Chief Adebayo Alao- Akala, on Tuesday threatened to formally report the state chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria to the Independent National Electoral Commission over what he called its frivolous and unsubstantiated allegations.


The allegations, the governor argued, were capable of bringing the entire electoral exercise into ridicule.


The governor made his position known in a statement made available to our correspondent by his Special Adviser on Public Communications, Mr. Dotun Oyelade, in Ibadan, the state capital.


Specifically, the governor took an exception to a statement credited to the opposition that he was planning to set up a Joint Task Force comprising the Army and the Police to harass opposition parties during election.


The governor insisted that electoral umpires should make it their duty to restrain politicians from statements that add no value to the essentials of democracy.


He described the allegation as “lazy, pedestrian and humbug.”


But the Secretary of ACN in the state, Mr. Wasiu Olatubosun, told our correspondent on the telephone that the party’s claims were factual.


Describing the source of the information as very reliable, Olatubosun said that as a responsible and responsive party, leaders of the ACN could not afford to fold their arms in the face of such information.


He said, “We all know that the hallmark of the PDP is crisis. We as a party cannot afford to wait for the crisis to erupt before talking.


“We got the information from a very reliable source and we stand by our claim.”
