Overhaul INEC Now—PDP Governors Beg Buhari


By Dipo Olowookere

The People Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of conniving with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to tamper with the outcome of the November 26, 2016 governorship election in Ondo State.

The PDP Governors’ Forum has therefore urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the electoral umpire to be fair in the conduct of forthcoming poll.

Speaking on Monday in Abuja via a statement signed by its Secretary, Mr Patrick Okon, the forum also called for an overhaul of the commission.

“We are aware of the plan of APC to get Ondo State by all means, including enlisting the assistance of INEC.

“We are warning that we will not fold our arms to watch this impunity and day-time robbery.

“INEC is an umpire and should play its role very well so that the electorate will have confidence in it.

“From the way things are going, the people are already losing confidence in the commission,” the statement said.

“INEC should conduct itself very well in this forthcoming Ondo state governorship election to avoid a repeat of what happened in Edo election,” it added.
