PDP claims more facts show 2 top INEC officials played roles in sabotaging process

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that two top officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), one of them, Amina Zakari, played major roles in sabotaging the presidential election scheduled for February 16.

The PDP, through a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday, February 17, said it was alerting Nigerians that contrary to what the presidency and the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, wanted them to know, it could confirm that some people within the federal government also played roles.

The statement insisted that INEC had a well-orchestrated plot from these other unnamed individuals who wanted to engineer a staggered presidential election.

“Nigerians will recall that the PDP had vehemently protested the continued retention of President Muhammadu Buhari’s relation, Mrs Amina Zakari, in INEC.

“We have been reliably informed that the same Amina Zakari and another high-ranking INEC commissioner played a pivotal role in assisting the APC and Buhari Presidency in sabotaging the operations of INEC and scuttling the February 16, elections.

“The reason for this is that President Buhari is determined to have a staggered election where he can use security agencies to subvert the will of the people at the polls.

“These APC elements in INEC engineered actions that affected the distribution and delivery of INEC sensitive materials to designated locations, thereby frustrating the electoral process.

“We also have details of how a hired a team of data hackers corrupted the voters register, with a view to cause mass confusion and voters suppression on the election day.

“Nigerians would have been shocked that many registered voters in possession of their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) would have arrived their polling centers on election day, only to discover to their amazement that their names have disappeared from the register in their units.

“Intelligence available to us further details how agents of the Buhari Presidency infiltrated the distribution system and ensured that sensitive election materials do not arrive at the designated locations, with the views to stall elections in several states and pave way for a staggered election,” the PDP said.

The party alleged further that this was in addition to deliberate swapping of sensitive election materials between different states and local governments “so as to muddle up the process and stall election in affected areas. In some of states like Edo, sensitive election materials did not arrive at their designated points on APC interruption.

“The PDP urges Nigerians to continue to be alert in resisting the APC and the Buhari presidency in their plot to sabotage our elections.

“Our promise to Nigerians is that we will continue to stand with the people in exposing APC’s rigging plots and stopping them from creating more havoc and destruction of our democratic process.

“We therefore call on President Buhari to save himself from further disgrace, as the signpost of enemy of democracy, by ensuring that his cabal and their ilk in APC cease forthwith from tampering with our electoral process.”
