Abuja - Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded arrangements to rig Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa, reports Daily Trust.

The PDP governors alleged that the APC has brought in Indians to effect the cloning of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs’) in order to rig the election. 

The governors under the umbrella of PDP Governors’ Forum (PDPGF) also alleged that part of the sinister plot of the APC include the procurement of police and military uniforms for agents of the party to wear on election day to achieve their plans to rig the poll.

The Forum noted that the APC was planning to circumvent the process in Bayelsa State since the party knows it cannot win without manipulating the system.
