Abuja - The national leadership of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed alleged plans to have the result of the Bayelsa Government election written up before it has even been announced, Punch has reported.

The party has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) have made deals with the military, police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to write up the result before the election is actually conducted.
