The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) to offer tangible explanation to Nigerians on how its Permanent Voter Card (PVC) allegedly became a commodity for sale online.
The PDP’s position is against the backdrop of apprehensions being
expressed by Nigerians regarding possible insider compromises in INEC, particularly ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The PDP is seriously uncomfortable with the attempts by INEC to
hurriedly wave off this very grave international embarrassment that goes to the heart of credible electioneering in our country.
We therefore call for a system-wide inquest into the matter,
particularly to hedge our PVC and all other sensitive electoral
materials from possible cloning.
We also urge Nigerians to continue to be at alert, especially as the All
Progressives Congress (APC) is bent on using every means to compromise the election and subvert the will of the people in the coming elections.
