The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has condemned the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ban the use of smart phones at Saturday’s Osun State governorship elections.
He accused the commission of perfecting the rigging formula for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Secondus spoke during an interactive session with party leaders in Bayelsa State on Tuesday. He urged Nigerians to rise to frustrate all the rigging strategies being perfected between INEC and the APC.
According to a statement from his media office, signed by Ike Abonyi, the PDP chairman said that the INEC decision to ban the use of smart phones is a deliberate plan to kill the means of gathering evidence against their rigging arrangements which is being fine-tuned and tested in Ekiti and Osun States.
“They have borrowed over N11 trillion yet there is nothing to show, hunger is raving the land and people are dying daily across the country,” he said.
Secondus said that critical stakeholders and the international community were worried at the debt profile of the administration which has risen to such astronomical level amidst huge corruption in the system.
“I crave your indulgence to stand up against all the evil plots of the APC by collecting your PVCs and using them judiciously to vote them out in all elections in 2019,” he said.
