Olufemi Ajadi, the governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Ogun state, says the party will sue the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the “omission of the party’s name from ballot papers”.

Ajadi spoke with journalists on Saturday after casting his vote at Ofada, Obafemi Owode LGA of Ogun state.

The NNPP candidate said he is “disappointed” over the conduct of the governorship and house of assembly elections in the state.

“As you can see, we cannot see security everywhere. In my polling unit, where I cast my vote, the APC gathered hoodlums to attack me,” he said.

“I’m so disappointed in this country. I’m so disappointed about the leaders that we have. People can’t move around freely to the extent that they were dragging guns with my security. Can you imagine? No, this is not an election.

“On the ballot paper, I can’t see my party, the NNPP. After writing to INEC, to make amendment before the election and today is an election, we can’t find the name, only the logo.

“By the grace of God, we are going to court to challenge INEC on reasons why they failed to put our name on the ballot paper. I’m disappointed in INEC.”

When TheCable checked the list of political parties on INEC website, it was observed that the name of the party was not inscribed on the party’s logo.
