I won’t accept rigged electoral victory – Kwara politician

A chieftain of the Accord Party in Kwara State, Mr Afolabi Jimoh-Kolawole has disclosed why he will never accept any election results rigged in his favour.

Jimoh-Kolawole came to the limelight in 2013 when he rejected his election as a councillor during a local government election in Offa Kwara State.

The politician had contested the election as a councillor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party and was declared the winner.

However, to the surprise of everyone, Jimoh-Kolawole rejected the outcome of that election which declared him as the winner, insisting that, “It is very clear that Offa people want APC; they don’t want PDP.”

Ten years after that uncommon act, Jimoh stressed that in spite of his persecution over the decision, he never regretted the action taken 10 years ago.

“I am still maintaining my integrity, honesty and fear of God. l will never take any elected position that was rigged in my favour,” he insisted
