The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it has uncovered plot by the INEC to recruit loyalists of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as ad-hoc staff ahead of the September 10 Edo governorship election.
Spokesman of PDP national caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye, also said the party had video evidence exposing INEC officials in Edo State of “compromising” the outcome of the election before September 10.
“We have once again uncovered another plot by the electoral umpire in Edo State to rig the gubernatorial election in favour of the party in power in the state.
“There are clear evidence available to us showing how INEC officials were recruiting APC members as Ad-Hoc staff to rig the election for the APC candidate.”
“We will not accept anything short of free, fair and credible process leading to the election in Edo State.
“We wish to assure INEC and the APC of our cooperation for a successful election but will not accept an election that is already compromised before the actual poll,” he said.
