The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it plans to challenge the results of the 16 July Osun governorship election at the election petition tribunal.
Gboyega Famodun, the state APC Chairman said this at a news conference on Thursday at the party secretariat, in Osogbo.
Mr Famodun said the decision followed assurances by the party lawyers who said that there were good grounds to challenge the results after they had studied them.
“We are going to the tribunal. Our lawyers had informed us that we have good reasons to challenge the results of the election at the tribunal,” he said.
He decried the suspected anti-party activities of an APC faction in the state”The Osun Progressive (TOP)”.
The Chairman said the TOP members worked for the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to deny the APC victory at the election.
