PDP Set To Lose, As APC And INEC Perfect Rigging Plans In Edo Poll
With the commencement of the Governorship election in Edo State, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it has uncovered plots by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to rig the poll.
A statement by the party’s Spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, on Wednesday afternoon, alleged that the APC, in an attempt to manipulate results of the poll, has connived with some staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, by writing fake results for nine Local Government Areas in the State.
According to Adeyeye,”We have become aware that senior members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in collusion with certain staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, have started writing fake & fictitious results, as part of their plan to manipulate the Edo State Gubernatorial elections, which takes place today.
“We are aware that these APC members are working in collusion with Mrs. Amina Zakari, an INEC National Official; Mrs. Imoudu Sule, Edo State INEC PRO; the Delta State REC; and the National Deputy Director of Operations.
“We are also aware that these officials have distributed millions of Naira to the Local Government Electoral Officers, to get them to write false & fictitious results in favour of APC, even before votes are cast.
“It is necessary to warn the Nigerian public, that our party will resist any attempts by the ruling party, to subvert the will of the people, by any engagement in the substitution of electoral materials.
“We urge all well-meaning Nigerians to counsel INEC, and the ruling party, to refrain from acting in a manner that may lead to the breakdown of law and other.”
Edo PDP Alleges Conspiracy by INEC, APC, Police to Rig Election
Previously Igberetvnews Exclusively Reported That peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm over alleged plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Edo State government in league with the police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the Wednesday’ governorship election in the state.
The party at a press conference in Benin City yesterday by its state Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, said with just three days to the elections, more disturbing facts and information were continually brought forward to the party that the state government and the APC want to deny the people the right to vote for the candidate of their choice
According to Nehikhare, “Very credible information reaching us says that Governor Adams Oshiomhole and his APC have concluded arrangements to thumb print fake ballot papers on Monday 26/9/2016 at Ibillo, Akoko Edo local government area, Edo North, and then transport the thumb printed fake ballot papers to their areas of weakness. Thereafter they will pretend to expose the perpetrators as PDP supporters. This “show” becomes the excuse to crackdown on PDP foot soldiers and undertake massive arrest of PDP staunch supporters. To give credence to the “show” they will plant fake PVC in the homes of our people. At this juncture, we advice that everyone must be vigilant and on alert till elections are over.
“They are planning to destabilise the election in Uromi, Ovia and parts of Oredo in order to provoke inconclusive elections in their areas of weakness. To achieve this, they have recruited a General Collins who APC paraded in a press conference on Friday and he boastfully announced the presence of his co-generals who, including himself, have no business in Edo but to forment trouble.
“Collation Center Danger…we formally requested for a meeting with staff (Local Government Collation Officers, Returning Officer for the State, Staff in charge of card readers, e-Collation Officers and members of the ICT team) of INEC assigned to the state to conduct the elections in Edo State. But that meeting never took place.
“We requested the names and identities of these staff to be made public but again we were denied. However, information available to us is that INEC has granted requests made by the APC for a similar meeting with the above mentioned staff.
“We are also reliably informed that members of APC have been granted remote access to INEC servers and INEC e-collation platforms. We are informed that this was done in furtherance of a plan by certain officials of INEC to grant APC real time access to INEC’s e-collation platforms in a bid to enable them manipulate results on the field at polling stations where they are losing elections or disrupt the electoral process at such locations.
“We also requested for a meeting with senior officers of the Nigerian Police Force assigned to provide security for the state during the elections, again, we were denied. Instead, our members are harassed, intimidated and arrested on trumped up charges
“ But we are reliably informed that members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were granted a similar meeting with these officers and members of APC led by Governor Adams Oshiomhole met with these officers in a bid to influence postings of officers to areas of the state in a manner that will favour their party,” he said.
Nehikhare also alleged that on Owan West local government area, one Reginald Okun has been boasting that the he has been directed by his party to compile names of PDP leaders to be given to DCP Ahmed Bello for harassment, intimidation and arrest.
The PDP scribe also alleged that the said Okun claimed to deploy cultists to the local government who are harassing their supporters and in some cases maiming them, citing the case of one of its agents who had three of his fingers cut off and is presently in an intensive care unit in hospital.
He also alleged that on Saturday night, on the alleged instruction of the governor, Police entered Okpella with four trucks to arrest some PDP members, adding, “this type of impunity must stop and be condemned by all as this behavior negates the tenets of free, fair and transparent elections.”
However, in their separate reactions, both the Edo state, Police Command and INEC denied the PDP’s allegations against them
