APC Calls Observers On PDP’s Alleged Plans To Rig The Saturday Presidential Elections.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has uncovered plans by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to induce Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials and the security agents to pave the way for them to rig the Saturday’s election.
The party also alleged that the PDP has concluded plans to distribute between five and ten million dollars to the states for logistics and mobilisation for the polls.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu made the allegation in a statement today.
The statement reads, “Following the leaked confidential report by the foreign elections strategists/consultants contracted by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which stated that the PDP’s presidential candidate, Alh. Atiku Abubakar will lose the forthcoming elections, we have received credible intelligence on some of PDP’s ominous plans ahead of the elections”.
“The apparently orchestrated arson attacks on some facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); syndicated fake news and planted false reports on the elections are part of the PDP’s strategies ahead of the Elections”.
“The confidential report by the foreign elections strategists/consultants has recommended that the PDP take “urgent steps to rectify the situation”.
“At the PDP’s strategy meeting held a few hours ago, the opposition party resolved to monetarily induce major actors and institutions in the electoral process with a view to compromising them ahead of the elections”.
“In this regard, the main opposition party has perfected plans to share money to persons and actors considered critical to the success of the elections. The PDP has also perfected plans to distribute between 5 and 10 million dollars to the States for “logistics and mobilisation” on election day”.
“PDP’s targets in the well-oiled machinery are INEC officials, security agencies and observers. This is expected to make such persons agreeable to their rigging plots and other evil machinations. The PDP is also using faceless bloggers to attack frontline security agencies in social media as part of their plan to discredit the agencies”.
“We must all be on high alert and resist this real and imminent threat posed by the PDP’s uncovered plans during the Elections.”
Meanwhile, Naija News today reported how 14 bags of APC thumb-printed being transported to Jigawa State were intercepted by the Police in Kano State.
