Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are currently protesting against the outcome of the recently concluded Osun Governorship election.
The PDP leaders include Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, are leading the protesters to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja.
The protesters are demanding that INEC declare PDP candidate Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the election.
In reaction, Governor Rauf Aregbesola told journalists during a visit to the presidential villa that the protest is nothing but a charade an act of irresponsibility.
“The party that was defeated in the election is already in the tribunal. So, I don’t know what the protest is meant to do.
“It is a charade and an act of gross irresponsibility. After an election, the only option left for any responsible citizen is to go to the tribunal.
“If you are already in court and you are still doing a street protest, it is either you are not mentally stable or you need psychiatric attention.”
