Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed to resist any
attempt by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) to derail
democracy in the country.
This was disclosed in a press statement signed by Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the party.
Metuh's sentiments follow the alleged discovery by the Directorate of State Security (DSS), plans by the opposition to clone Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and utilizing technologies to hack into the Independent National Electoral Commission’s data base to compromise the 2015 general elections.
"This discovery at the APC office in Lagos is a clear confirmation of our stand, and fears by well-meaning Nigerians of APC’s criminal desperation, lust for power, plot to cause confusion and truncate our democracy,” the PDP statement read.

According to the party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been accusing INEC and security agencies of working to rig the 2015 elections in favour of the PDP.
“Little did Nigerians realize that such were smokescreens designed to divert attention from their heinous and unpatriotic plots. We believe that the APC, in its desperate attempt to grab power by all means, has already established cloning and hacking centres in all the 36 states of the federation to actualize their dubious machination to subvert the will of the people."
PDP called on all Nigerians and lovers of democracy across the world to note the alleged desperation of the APC.
"Our citizens must therefore remain vigilant and resist any attempt by the APC to steal their mandate. We also call on security agencies to fully investigate this atrocious cloning and ensure that whoever is found culpable faces the full weight of the law.”
APC earlier this week claimed the raid by DSS was illegal and denied any wrongdoing.
