The Ladoja Campaign Organisation has condemned what it called “an unholy alliance” between the Oyo State Independent National Electoral Commission and the National Union of Road Transport Workers in the state, describing it as a call for anarchy.
The campaign group, in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday by its Director General, Adeolu Adeleke, said the arrangement by INEC to use buses belonging to members of the NURTW in the state to convey electoral officers during elections was suspect.
Mr. Adeleke said the arrangement was not only wrong on account of NURTW members being loyalists of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state but also posed a grave danger to the integrity of the result of the elections.
He advised “INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Rufus Akeju, not to centralise the hiring of buses; rather, the electoral officer in each local government council should be given the opportunity to hire buses without any condition attached to it,”
He also called on the Resident Electoral Commissioner to utilise the window provided by the extension of PVC collection to ensure the cards were taken to the polling units without further delay so as not to disenfranchise about 1 million people who were yet to get their PVCs.
The Ladoja Campaign Organisation enjoined the people of the state to cast their votes for Senator Rashidi Ladoja and other candidates of Accord.
