The PDP called on the Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu to vacate office.
PDP clarified that Yakubu would vacate office because, under his rule, the electoral system of the country was marred by the invasion of polling units, the intimidation of voters and the stuffing of stolen ballot boxes.
The PDP accused INEC of canceling outcomes and falsely allocating fake outcomes to political parties in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement reads: “The chairman of the INEC will recognize his shortcomings and vacate his office without further delay. This is because there is no way Nigerians can continue to repose confidence in the commission under his watch.
“Of course, not under an electoral commission that condones the invasion of polling units, suppression of voters and stuffing of snatched ballot boxes; an INEC that cancels results in places where election held peacefully while announcing fabricated results allocated to its favored
political party as valid votes.
“The PDP totally rejects attempts by INEC to shift the blames for its failures to other political parties. It is on record that our party had consistently pointed to infractions created and allowed by INEC to
facilitate rigging in elections.
‘While calling on Nigerians to remain calm, the PDP charges Prof. Yakubu and the INEC leadership under him to do the needful by vacating offices to save our electoral system from complete collapse.”
