The “OSUN VANGUARD FOR CREDIBLE ELECTION” (OVFCE) organization is formed.
The association populated by indigenes of Osun State is principally formed to redeem the image of our state as arguably the most notorious state for proven cases of electoral irregularities across the Nigerian federation.
The association is worried that since 2007, the state elections have been a subject of never ending electoral disputes and litigations. It was first between Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and since then, we have moved from one electoral debacle to the next.
The OVFCE stated in a statement signed by Prof. Abiodun Oni, Interim Coordinator, and the Interim Secretary that it is past time for the state’s enlightened personalities to rise up to the occasion and change the state’s notorious image of being ‘election riggers and figurehead goblins‘ for selfish reasons.
Their principal charge is captured in the following anecdote : “We are tired of being called names and having our images shattered wherever we go; we, the indigenes of the state who freely identify with the state, are being labeled as election manipulators and riggers.”This must stop.
The association calls on the well-meaning indigenes of the state to join hands with the group to rid our state of power mongers who will stop at nothing to dip the state into the murky water of electoral rigging.
