The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in a statement by Ike Abonyi, condemned the development, stressing that, it was when it was obvious to the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) of losing the election, that the commission deliberately postponed the election.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader warned that the party will not accept anything short of a well organised electoral process devoid of manipulation, harassment and intimidation of voters and opposition elements.
Hear him “Having failed in all their nefarious options to enable them cling on to power, the APC and the INEC came up with the idea of shifting election an action that is dangerous to our democracy and unacceptable”.
Penpushing further reports that, Secondus alleged that the All Progressives Congress(APC) connived with the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to undermine the exercise, including burning down commission offices in some States and destroying electoral materials to create artificial problems upon which to stand for their dubious act.
“With several of their riggings failing, they have to force INEC to agree to a shift in the election or a staggered election with flimsy excuses pre-manufactured for the purpose. For the avoidance of doubt the PDP sees this action as wicked and we are also aware of other dubious designs like the deployment of hooded security operatives who would be ruthless on the people ostensibly to scare them away,” Mr Secondus said.
The National Chairman recalls that the opposition party had earlier alerted Nigerians that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was perfecting lined up rigging strategies including burning down of commission offices and engineering crisis to scare away the people.
