The major opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged a plan is afoot by the Presidency with the collaboration of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to rig the 2019 elections with underage voters.
Through a statement by its national spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP believes the INEC’s computer data centre has been compromised, ahead of the 2019 election whole also alleging that presidential cabals have directed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conceal an investigative report on underage voters in Kano and Katsina States.
The statement reads in parts, “We charge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stop covering the atrocities of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by making public its findings on underage voters in various states, particularly Kano and Katsina.
“We are aware that the investigation unearthed a multitude of underage voters, particularly in Kano and Katsina, but that INEC has been instructed by the APC and the Presidency cabal to conceal the atrocity, which they plan to use to rig the 2019 presidential election for President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Our investigation reveals that beyond underage voters, the INEC panel discovered other atrocities, which the APC and the Presidency agents have been suppressing.
“We are also aware of the manipulations in INEC’s computer data center, which has been handed over to a compromised official known to be related to President Buhari.
“Nigerians are shocked that the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu is allowing the APC and the Presidency cabal to use him in their desperation to rig the 2019 election for President Buhari despite his overt rejection by the citizens as a result of the failures of his administration.
