Kaduna PDP cries-out for plan to tamper with Election Materials

On Sunday, the Peoples Democratic Party Kaduna State Chapter alleged that INEC was planning to tamper with the March 9, 2019 governorship election materials in the state.

Mr Abraham Catoh, who’s the party’s state Publicity Secretary, made the allegation known via a statement made available to journalists in Kaduna.

It would be recalled that the ruling of the state election petition tribunal been appealed to by the PDP after it was dismissed for a re-count of votes.

The spokesperson made it clear that the party has evidence that INEC was planning to tamper with the election materials in its custody.

According to him, INEC is being pressurized to tamper with the materials of the election, so as to favour the All Progressives Congress in the state.

He gave warnings to the commission NOT to tamper with the election materials, stating that such a move would be resisted by the electorate.

He stated, “The Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna State has received credible information that the Independent National Electoral Commission is under intense pressure to tamper with election materials used for the conduct of governorship elections on March 9, 2019 in the state.

“We are drawing the attention of the world, Nigerians and the people of Kaduna State in particular to note the attempt by the ruling All Progressives Congress and the government of Kaduna State to coerce INEC into tampering with electoral materials.

“In as much as we do not want to question the integrity of INEC, we wish to state that the eyes and ears of our teeming party faithfuls and sympathisers are wide open in all INEC offices spread throughout the 23 Local Government Areas of Kaduna State and INEC state headquarters.

“We advise INEC not to do anything that can tamper with the fragile peace reigning in the state, as any attempt to do the bidding of undemocratic external forces will be resisted by the public whose mandate was earlier stolen.”

The PDP wondered why people who claimed to have won the governorship elections would be putting pressure on INEC to tamper with the election materials in their favour.
