EDO POLL: APC Cries Out, Alleges PDP Plans To Rig Election

EDO POLL: APC Cries Out, Alleges PDP Plans To Rig Election
A statement credited to John Osakue, the State Director of Godwin Obaseki Campaign Organisation that the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) plans to rig Wednesday’s Edo State gubernatorial election has been dismissed by the opposition party. 

The PDP described the allegation as a smokescreen designed to deceive Nigerians and distract them from the All Progressive Congress' (APC) perfected plans to rig the election. According to PDP spokesman, Mr. Adeyeye, the statement is not only false but is misleading and totally in keeping in line with the APC principle of propaganda over no substance.

Adeyeye continued, “it is a common knowledge that the ruling APC control the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as well as all the security agencies, and has shown a willingness to use the state apparatus to manipulate the electoral process”.

“The record of poor and inconclusive elections since the inception of the current administration is an example of how far the APC is willing to go to subvert the will of the people, Adeyeye said.”

He further alleged that the All Pregressive Congress is planning to manipulate the electoral process by collaborating with the electoral body (INEC) to gain access to INEC remote server to disrupt and manipulate the e-collation process. This they intend to do by ensuring the failure of card readers in PDP strongholds in Edo State and using the national security to manipulate and intimidate voters.

Adeyeye also maintain that this was the reason in which the Federal Government changed the Police Commissioner in Edo State three times within one week.
