Minister of Communications Adebayo Shittu has labelled the local council poll in Oyo state on Saturday as a charade.
The ruling All Progressives Congress won all the councils but Shittu told the press on Sunday in Ibadan that the poll is a violation of democracy.
According to him, “The council poll is a travesty of justice and a violation of the spirit of democracy. It is self-serving and aimed specifically at the gubernatorial primaries of the party.
“I am happy that we all are in the state and saw that the generality of our people ignored the election, despite the fact that we in the Unity Forum did not instruct people to do so.
“We will not sleep, rest on our oars, be cowed nor submit to injustice or impunity. We will not.”
