The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has rejected the decision by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to reschedule the Presidential and National Assembly elections and the Governorship and State Assembly Elections.

In a press release signed by National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, PDP vehemently condemned the postponement describing it as an agenda by President Muhammadu Buhari to cling to power. He called on INEC Chairman to resign immediately.

 

“The shoddy arrangement for this election by the Independent National Electoral Commission is a deliberate predetermined agenda of President Buhari to cling on to power even when it's obvious to him that Nigerians want him out.

 

“The postponement which is part of a grand design by the All Progressives Congress, to thwart the will of Nigerians at all cost, clearly exposes INEC as a failure and I call on the Chairman of the Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu to resign immediately.

 

“I want to warn that the party, PDP, will not accept anything short of a well organized electoral process devoid of manipulation, harassment and intimidation of voters and the opposition particularly members of the PDP.

 

The party accused that All Progressive Congress , APC, and INEC have been trying all within their powers to thwart the will of the electorate, including burning down INEC offices in some states and destroying electoral materials in order to create problem.
