The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the United Nations to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from “rigging” the 2019 general elections.
The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus said this while appealing to a UN delegation led by Mohammed Ibn Chambas, who visited the PDP National Secretariat today, in Abuja.
Secondus explained that PDP had lost hope in INEC and its ability to conduct the credible polls.
“INEC has not lived up to expectations. It should come out in clear terms and be seen as an umpire. Since they took over, a lot of issues have trailed their conduct of elections.
“There are no perfect elections anywhere in the world but there are glaring issues of concern. We suspect that INEC will rig the elections. We suspect that the rigging will start from Borno State, especially with the number of people in the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps,” he said.
He added that under-aged were registering under INEC in the north as part of the rigging plan.
The PDP boss said it was incongruous for the ruling party to continue the blame game instead of delivering on the campaign promises to Nigerians.
“They have stolen money more than all the governments in Nigeria since 1960, put together; this current government. What is going on is looting of public treasury.
“So we challenge the Vice President to come out with facts and figures. Blame game for three years?” he queried.
