The national leadership of the party set up a nine-man committee headed by Ododo, while Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was appointed as the secretary.

Ododo, who arrived in the state on Saturday morning, addressed some of the aggrieved stakeholders at the distribution centre (a hotel) in Ijapo area of Akure, saying the electoral materials had been sent to the Ondo South and Ondo North senatorial districts remaining that of the Ondo Central (as of 10.30am).

There was no issue, I just came this (Saturday) morning, and I was told that the election materials have been taken to Ondo South and Ondo North Senatorial Districts,” the committee chairman stated.

But one of the aspirants, Gbenga Edema, disagreed with the governor, saying election materials were not moved anywhere.

He said, “I have been here since 6.30am and I didn’t see any material taken out of this place. The returning officers and electoral officers of my ward, Mahin Ward 2 in Ilaje Local Government are here and unable to collect any materials.

“What we are asking for is a credible election. So, we are asking the leadership of the party to look into this. If they’re not ready for this election, they should postpone it and the right thing should be done.”

Similarly, the Programme Officer of the Wale Akinterinwa Campaign Organization, Sola Arowosafe, demanded the cancellation of the entire exercise, alleging that the primary election committee was not fair with the process.
