ABUJA – The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of working hand in glove with the All Progressives Congress, APC, to assist the latter in manipulating the electoral processes in Bauchi, Sokoto and Adamawa states, ahead of supplementary governorship elections billed for tomorrow.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja yesterday, spokesman of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the umpire was yet to complete the collation of results to determine the margin of lead in the governorship election, yet it is proceeding to conduct a supplementary election in Bauchi.
“This anomaly being created by INEC is directly geared to cause confusion and muddle-up the Bauchi electoral process and pave the way for allocation of fictitious votes to the APC.
“The PDP has reports of how the INEC leadership connived with the APC to delay the collation of results from Tafawa Balewa Local government, then stampede the courts to halt the process in an attempt to ambush the March 23 Supplementary election.
“This informs why INEC hurriedly and shamelessly jettisoned its statutory independence and implemented the unconstitutional ex-parte order to halt the collation of results in Bauchi and Adamawa states, even before the order was enrolled and served on it.
“The PDP cautions INEC to note that it already has the figures of votes delivered at the polling units. We also have figure of voters with PVCs in the areas where INEC plans to conduct supplementary elections. Therefore any attempt by INEC and the APC to pad the results to favor the APC will be firmly resisted.
