PDP alleges plot to rig Bayelsa poll

19 October 2015, 13:21

Yenagoa - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of planning to rig the December 5 governorship election in the state, reports Daily Times.

The party said its allegations were based on the sudden transfers of the Department of State Security (DSS) State Director Baba Alhassan and Police Commissioner Paul Okafor.

Bayelsa PDP Chairman Serena Dokubo-Spiff said Okafor’s transfer, which came shortly after Alhassan was removed a month to the election, raised questions about the motives for such actions.

He described the transfers as unwise and curious in the current circumstance in the state.

He noted that the transfers were a calculated move by the APC to use the security apparatus in the state to rig the election in favour of its candidate in the election.

The PDP chairman urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the alleged plan.
