#OndoDecides: We have no confidence in INEC – PDP

26 November 2016, 06:20

Abuja - The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party has said that it has no confidence in the Independent National Electoral Commission.

It also alleged that the commission played a “suspicious role” in frustrating its candidate in the Ondo State governorship election, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), from campaigning for the election.

Spokesman for the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, stated this at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.

 He alleged that INEC was deliberately working against the interest of the PDP by putting the name of Jimoh Ibrahim as its candidate at first and later refusing to honour the party’s request for a postponement of the election after the Court of Appeal had affirmed Jegede’s candidacy on Thursday.

Adeyeye also alleged that the electoral officers who allegedly rigged the election in Edo State, were being deployed to Ondo State to manipulate Saturday’s election.
