The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) plans to introduce certain clauses into the newly passed Electoral Act 2022 that will compromise the 2023 elections.
The party’s publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba stated that the ” the APC, having realized that it is running out of time and cannot meet up with the already released electoral timetable now seeks to frustrate and derail the ongoing electoral process”.
They stated further that the Buhari-led government had perfected plans to use the new APC leadership in the National Assembly to allegedly orchestrate an amendment to the Electoral Act to create an opening for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to change its already released 2023 Election Timetable and Schedule of Activities to accommodate the APC.
“Our Party has information about how the APC has been mounting pressure on INEC to push forward the already scheduled dates for the 2023 general elections.”
PDP noted that they would not accept the alleged plot by the APC to shift the goal post in the middle of the game and cautioned INEC to resist such a heinous design against democracy.
