INEC SABOTAGING ELECTION
…Hiding presidential and National Assembly elections result sheets from PDP agents
…Plan to fill in fictitious figures for Buhari exposed
…EDO PDP rejects stand-alone elections
You will recall that on February 11, 2019 Edo PDP raised the alarm that INEC in collaboration with APC was planning to sabotage the elections blaming it on logistical problems.
It’s 7.00pm on the eve of the presidential and National Assembly elections and materials including result sheets for presidential and National Assembly for Edo are not available.
This sabotage was orchestrated and is a danger to our democracy.
They want stand-alone elections so they can deploy their agents of intimidation and harassment.
We condemn it and reject it in all its ramifications.
As their shambolic plan was playing out, the government unleashed its attack dogs on PDP youths and leaders across the state. Some were invited to DSS offices while others were invited to police stations. Reason for the invitations not stated. Those that honored the invitations were summarily removed from circulation while others were picked up and locked up in their cells.
We call on all Nigerians and the international community to condemn this act and prevail on the government to organize a free, fair and transparent election devoid of government intimidation and harassment.
Edo people will be disenfranchised if it’s election is held on a different day from the rest of the country. As it stands, we have no confidence in INEC as it is compromised or just downright incompetent.
