The Edo State PDP has raised alarm that it has uncovered a plot whereby the rigging of the Edo State Governorship Election is being coordinated by three highly placed INEC officials.
The three INEC officials allegedly involved in this plot are, Mrs. Amina Zakari, an INEC national; Mrs. Imoudu Sule, Edo State INEC PRO; The Delta State REC; and the national Deputy Director of Operations.
Making the allegation at a press conference in Benin City, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Chris Nehikhare stated that the plot was under the supervision of Amina Zakari, through the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Delta State.
The PDP spokesman alleged that Mrs Imoudu Sule is in charge of the disbursement of compromise money to selected local government electoral officers. He said that so far, Mrs. Sule has distributed two million naira each to nine electoral officers whose local government results are being written before ballots are cast, to favour the ruling APC.
Mr. Nehikhare, while telling the public to take note said that the PDP will resist any attempt by the ruling party to subvert the will of the people by any engagement in the substitution of electoral materials. He warned that nobody should act in way that would precipitate anarchy.
