Ahead of the 2019 elections, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is working to the advantage of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oshiomhole made the allegation on Wednesday, February 13, at a press briefing in Abuja, the nation’s capital, Punch reports.
Legit.ng gathers that he said the APC is seriously concerned over signals from Rivers and Zamfara states where the electoral commission has barred the ruling party from presenting candidates.
He said: “If anything, INEC has been very unfair on APC. The commission seems to be working for the PDP.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday, February 7, told members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Election Monitoring Team led by former president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, that series of unsubstantiated allegations and misleading comments by the PDP against the ruling party constitute a threat to the forthcoming general elections.
Oshiomhole, who declared that the APC is working towards ensuring free and fair elections by insisting that its members comport themselves as true democrats, however, regretted that the opposition PDP was not ready to abide by the rules.
