The party said INEC and the police force worked hand in hand to carry out the alleged malpractices that led to the victory of APC’s candidate.
Speaking with journalists, Secondus said: “We want to remind our security chiefs that they swore to defend Nigeria and defend and protect our parties.
“Nigeria is a multi-party state, a multi-party nation but what we have witnessed in Osun shows clearly that APC is not ready for election and we are afraid that Buhari will not hand over if he loses the election next year.”
