The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, Sen. Smart Adeyemi has expressed dissatisfaction over the outcome of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Gubernatorial primary election in the state.
Recall that the Kogi APC governorship primary election which held on Friday, April 14, 2023, saw the emergence of Ahmed Usman Ododo, as the party’s flag bearer.
However, reacting to the outcome of the primary election, Adeyemi, who was one of the contenders for the governorship seat under the platform of the APC, described the primary election in the state as a ‘rape of democracy.’
He stated this while speaking in an interview on Arise Television on Monday, April 17.
The Kogi lawmaker, who insisted there was no election, said God will descend on officials of INEC, if they agree that the APC primaries election took place.
He said, “About eight of us, apart from probably the man that was anointed, none of us has the privilege to vote. In essence, there was no voting anywhere. What they did was to write the result. It was a sham, it was a rape of democracy, it was a disgrace, a betrayal of all those who laid down their lives for the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria.”
