The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charged President Muhammadu Buhari to allow Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states without interference from security agencies.
In a statement issued Sunday and signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a statement made available to the media in Abuja.
He said the world is watching how Nigeria would fare in these two elections especially when the election that brought President Muhammadu Buhari to power was free and fair devoid of electoral violence.
The statement reads: “Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that it is a sad commentary for President Muhammadu Buhari, who won an election on a free ballot in 2015 to contemplate or bemoan how he could have used security agencies to undermine the integrity of the electoral process in our country
Nigerians are aware that in the 2019 presidential election, such despotic and oppressive tactics were deployed to circumvent the electoral process and the wishes of Nigerians
“As a party, the PDP hopes this is not foreplay of what the APC and Buhari Presidency is planning to exert in the Edo and Ondo governorship elections scheduled for September and October 2020 respectively
