Why PDP Members Should Register With APC At Night - Nwoye

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to give in to pressure from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a statement on Saturday, Kola Ologbondiyan, national publicity secretary of the PDP, claimed that the APC was mounting pressure on INEC.

The party warned the chairman of INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, not to fall for APC’s pressure in the interest of the unity of Nigeria.

The PDP said: “We have been informed that the INEC Chairman has come under intense pressure from the APC to allow the replacement of results declared in the riverine areas of Edo State in order to jerk up figures for the APC,” the statement read.

“The PDP has also observed that INEC’s virtual portal is increasingly becoming unstable. We also have information on ploys being undertaken to replace results in Fugar and other adjoining local governments, all in Edo North.

“We have the results as already declared in the various polling units and we urge INEC to confine itself to these results already declared by its officials at the polling units.

“We invite Nigerians to closely monitor results being declared on the INEC virtual portal to ensure the wishes of the people of Edo State are not altered overnight.”
