Uncovered!!! APC plotting to rig Abia polls , PDP alleges
By Steve Oko
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the ruling All Progressive Congress APC, of grand plot to massively rig the forthcoming general elections in Abia State in favour of its candidates.
Chairman of PDP, Abia State, Chief Johnson Onuigbo, who made the allegation at a press conference in Umuahia on Monday, said his party had already put in place counter measures to checkmate any attempt to steal the mandate of the people.
Onuigbo vowed that any move to manipulate the outcome of the polls in the state would be stoutly resisted by both PDP and the people.
“APC is planning to rig that is why it is not campaigning . We don’t see them in the field but they are boasting of how they will use federal might to win.
“But any attempt to rig will not work. It will be vigorously resisted”, Onuigbo vowed.
He urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to ensure the forthcoming polls are credible and transparent, saying INEC should be held responsible if the Nigerian democracy crumbles.
” Riging will not work if INEC is determined to be fair. The card reader is not sold in the market, and if we see it in the hand of any politician, INEC should be held responsible “.
Onuigbo further lampooned INEC for the postponement of the polls , saying it would lead to voter apathy on the rescheduled date.
He described the postponement as the height of incompetence and warned the electoral umpire against compromise.
