Femi Branch, the deputy governorship candidate of the National Rescue Movement (NRM) in Ogun, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) of compromising the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the state election.
The actor took to his Instagram page to allege that there was partisanship at the polling unit in Araromi Primary School, Idona in Ogun on Saturday.
“Its the audacity for me! After buying the voters between them, APC & PDP also compromised INEC and the small parties are suffering for it. Any candidate declared winner in Ogun State is a fraud!” he wrote.
“First fake ballot papers & after protests lasting over 2 hours, another set was brought and we finally voted only for them to count only APC and PDP votes.
“We protested again & they counted ADC & that was it. No results can come out of Araromi Primary School Idona in Ogun.”
Last year, Branch was named the running mate to Tofunmi Ogunronbi, the governorship candidate of NRM in Ogun state.
Ogunronbi said he picked the Ogun-born actor because he believed Branch would add more value to his candidacy.
In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle, Branch said there is a limit to which politicians can rig elections.
“If they had the power to swing elections however they want, they won’t try to get closer to the people,” he had said.
“The propaganda of votes not counting is what the political elites sold to us somehow. Your vote bloody counts. There’s a limit to which they can rig elections.”
