#EdoDecides: PDP describes election postponement as a coup

09 September 2016, 12:17

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the postponement of this Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State by two weeks as a coup.

The party argued that there is no justification to tamper with the election as initially scheduled.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the Ahmed Makarfi-led group of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, said the shift in the polls signals a bad signal for the nation’s democracy.

Adeyeye called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly to conduct a non-partisan holistic investigation of the national security apparatus.

He described the postponement as not only illegal but also unconstitutional and a breach of the peoples’ trust in the Commission and the security agencies.

The statement read in part, “It is shameful and indeed a major constitutional breach for the security agencies to act in concert with the APC to truncate an election that had been planned for months.

“Nigerians are not deceived by the obvious concoctions of the security agencies whose performances during elections have been less than average since the advent of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

“Indeed, they have become instruments in the hands of the ruling party to harass, intimidate and punish opponents.”
