INEC dismisses allegation to rig 2019 elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to provide evidence that it’s plotting with President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, to rig the 2019 elections.

PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan had advised INEC to distance itself from an alleged plot to compromise the Electoral Guidelines and pave the way for the alteration of the forthcoming general elections results.

Speaking at a news conference in Abuja, Ologbondiyan alleged that INEC chairman, Mahood Yakubu, was under pressure to drop the display of results at the polling units as well as the electronic transmission of polled figures to the server of the electoral umpire from its guidelines.

However, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, rubbished the claim, while challenging PDP to provide the evidence in its possession to prove its allegation.
