PDP claims APC elements in INEC sabotaged electoral process

The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday alleged that some people it described as elements of the ruling All Progressives Congress have been sabotaging the Independent National Electoral Commission.

It claimed that their plan was targeted at forcing the commission to conduct staggered presidential election. The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the allegation in a statement.

Ologbondiyan claimed that the party’s leaders had been reliably informed that some top officials of INEC assisted the APC and the Presidency in sabotaging the commission’s operations and scuttling the elections earlier slated for February 16.

He further claimed that the idea behind the sabotage was to force the electoral body to conduct staggered election where the government can use security agencies to subvert the will of the people.
