How ex-president’s men rigged S’West polls

Fresh documents obtained by Daily Sun have exposed the massive electoral fraud perpetrated by the Peoples Democratic Party in the previous elections, especially in 2003. A comparative analysis of the results of the presidential election in 2003 and 2011, with particular reference to Ogun state, show a rather wide margin between registered voters and actual votes.

The document shows that while the PDP scored 60,444 votes in the presidential elections in Ikenne local Government in 2003, the total registered voters in the same local council in 2011 is 42,192. The population, rather than increase, was depleted by over 18,000, a situation clearly depicting that the 2003 figures were simply allocated to the ruling party and thus had no relationship with the existing register.

Daily Sun was told that former President Olusegun Obasanjo remained the biggest beneficiary of the electoral fraud of the time. Our source said real result sheets were torn and new figures allocated. In Ijebu East local council, the PDP scored 67,370 votes in 2003 while the registered voters in the same council in 2011 was 49,219. The figures again show depletion rather than a natural rise after eight years.
The Ogun case is also an example of the acclaimed credibility of the 2011 elections. In Remo North local council the PDP scored 65,736 in the 2003 Presidential poll while the registered voters eight years after stood at 36,754.
Daily Sun learnt that the practice in the past, as shown in the foregoing figures was to begin the rigging process at the registration point via multiple registration in order to make room for inflation of result figures.

While reacting to the wide disparity, the former Governor of the state, Aremo Segun Osoba, said the figures were a vindication for him and the set of governors in the South –west in 2003 who insist that they were rigged out of office.
“But I pity Obasanjo because in his life time all the electoral fraud he perpetrated are being exposed. He has not only been tamed in Ogun state, he has been caged in the entire country. The 2011 elections have put him where he belongs. It has put him in an Iron cage where he cannot escape. He should now go and live the rest of his life in peace and learn to keep his mouth shut,’ said Osoba whose party, Action Congress of Nigeria won the gubernatorial elections in Ogun state.

Osoba said the 2011 elections were largely credible in that the people’s wishes were respected and expressed optimism that the South West zone has returned to the mainstream progressive politics which has always been their political identity.
He hoped that in the years to come the elections would be more credible, especially given that the use of force and false figures as obtained in the previous years would no longer apply.
