Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega is working with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the general elections, reports Punch.
The party said Jega had meetings with some unnamed leaders of the APC in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to prefect plans on how to rig the elections.
Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said the meetings were aimed at making sure that those who had yet to get the Permanent Voter Cards were denied the opportunity of receiving them.
