APC Must Come Clean On Why Tinubu’s Legal Team Watermark Is On Tribunal CTC Copies - PDP Insists

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State has raised an alarm over plots by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to hack into Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, portals.

The Kwara chapter of the APC alleges that plans have been perfected by the PDP in the state to manipulate the March 18 election through the hacking of the INEC portal.

The spokesman of the APC in the state, Aro Tajudeen Folaranmi, in a statement issued in Ilorin, the state capital on Tuesday, claimed that that is what the opposition is relying on to sneak back to power in the state, Naija News learnt.

The Kwara APC, therefore, warned the INEC to be vigilant during Saturday’s polls, adding that the commission should be on the watch over the use of its various electronic platforms.

The party said “Of particular concern is the information at our disposal that the opposition party has perfected plans to hack into INEC portals to manipulate the process to its advantage.

“This is what the PDP is now banking on to re-impose an expired political dynasty on the state after its total rejection by the people. We, therefore, call for absolute vigilance.”

The APC also seized the opportunity to appeal to the electoral umpire to work on its logistics, as it was a major problem during the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The party stated that “We are convinced that INEC would have conducted some reviews of the last election to identify areas where it has to do better in the coming and future polls.

“We feel especially compelled to call on the INEC to address the late arrival of its officials and materials to various polling units. Equally important is the rampant incident of insufficient electoral materials, including ink.

“As the professional body, we are certain that INEC must have discovered some other things that should be improved upon, and we hope to see such improvements on Saturday.

“All said, we commend the body for its exemplary conduct during the last election, and we seek a better outing on Saturday.”
