Following the fire outbreak at INEC headquarters in Akure, the All Progressives Congress in Ondo state today said it believes strongly that the gravity of what has happened demands prompt action from the security agencies to immediately unravel what actually transpired, to forestall a recurrence.

In a Statement signed by its State publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaye, the APC said the chapter also cautioned the national headquarters of INEC to do all it could to ensure the incident does not result in setbacks in its preparation for the governorship election in October.

“The All Progressives Congress in Ondo is taken aback over the fire incident at the State office of Independent National Electoral Commission, Akure last night.

“Although, fire incident could happen at any time, yet the party is more concerned that the unfortunate occurrence happened a few weeks to the gubernatorial election.

“While the party declines to join the pontificating wagon to condemn and apportion blame on the unfortunate development, we believe strongly that the gravity of what has happened demands prompt action from the security agencies to immediately unravel what actually transpired, to forestall a recurrence.

“The chapter also calls on the national headquarters of INEC to do all it could to ensure the incident does not result in setbacks in its preparation for the governorship election in October,” said Kalejaye.
