BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has warned that if what the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the All Progressives Congress did in Ekiti and Osun states elections are rehearsals of what they are planning for 2019, there may be no Nigeria.
This is just as he said that the INEC Chairman, Prof Yakubu Mahmood should be held responsible for brewing crisis in the country ahead of 2019 in his greed to satisfy the agenda of his appointees.
The PDP national chairman specifically asked the INEC to declare PDP winner in the Osun’s Saturday governorship election to avert national crisis.
Prince Secondus pointedly warned that the PDP will not accept anything less than its deserved victory because the party won the election clearly and unambiguously.
These were contained in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Ike Abonyi in which he further said that after INEC robbed the PDP of victory in Ekiti state and said they should go to the tribunal, now in Osun state after the opposition party won glaringly INEC and APC have concocted another story of inconclusive using cancelled votes just to pacify their pay masters.
The PDP national Chairman also drew the attention of the nation’s security apparatchik to the possible threat to peace and oneness of this country by the brazing rigging of elections by a supposedly independent electoral umpire.
He wondered what President Muhammadu Buhari, who left the country to the US for the united Nation’s General Assembly today would be telling democratic community when he cannot conduct simple state governorship election.
Secondus said; “What other evidence do the democratic watchers and security agencies need to establish obvious bias from INEC when the commission’s administrative officer caught destroying result sheets in Ayedade Local Government Area where over a thousand votes belonging to PDP were removed, confirmed acting on the instruction of his superior officer.
“What will President Buhari be telling democratic world at the UN when back home he has brutalized all agents of democracy and has been unable to conduct a simple state bye election.”
Secondus described as shameless INEC taking instructions from the APC and deciding to declare the result inconclusive when it is obvious to all watchers that the PDP candidate won the election.
The PDP national Chairman salutes and commended the people of Osun state for their dexterity and vigilance that led to the arrest of the fraudulent INEC official as he called on the international community to watch closely and condemn the electoral commission for their lack of neutrality ahead of 2019 general election.
