Resign now, Seconds tells INEC chairman

PDP national auditor denies accusing Secondus of financial impropriety

The peoples Democratic Party leadership has asked the Chairman of the independent Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu to resign due to his inability to conduct the presidential election today (Saturday) as initially scheduled.
The party’s Chairman, Uche Secondus, rejected the postponement and said it was orchestrated to rig President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress into victory.
Secondus said in a statement, “The PDP leader warns that the party 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.
“Having failed in all their nefarious options to enable them cling on to power, the APC and the INEC came up with the idea of shifting election an action that is dangerous to our democracy and unacceptable.
“The National Chairman said that the APC in connivance with the INEC have been trying all options including but not limited to burning down INEC offices in some states and destroying of electoral materials to create artificial problems upon which to stand for their dubious act.”
“With several of their rigging options failing, they have to force INEC to agree to a shift in the election or a staggered election with flimsy excuses pre-manufactured for the purpose.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP sees this action as wicked and we are also aware of other dubious designs like the deployment of hooded security operatives who would be ruthless on the people ostensibly to scare them away.”
