2019: PDP hints on boycotting elections, gives reasons

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday hinted on pulling out of the 2019 general elections if the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and security agencies fail to establish their impartiality.

PDP’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus said this at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja while hosting a combined delegation of the International Republican Institute, IRI, and the National Democratic Institute, NDI.

He lamented INEC’s alleged manipulation of vote figures in the recently concluded Ekiti governorship election in favour of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Secondus also accused the Nigeria Police Force of chasing away PDP agents from various polling centres particularly areas known to be its strongholds.

He said, “We are still contemplating on whether we will participate in the 2019 elections or not. We are yet to take a decision on this.

“We are not sure that the security agencies and INEC would be impartial and transparent. In the Ekiti elections, there were instances our party agents’ tags were removed and given to the APC agents.

“There were clear cases of manipulation, ballot snatching and harassment of our party agents.”
