Jos, – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Plateau, has alleged massive irregularities in the ongoing Local Government Area (LGA) poll in the state.
Mr. John Akans, the party’s Publicity Secretary in the state said this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Jos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that election is currently going on in 13 out of the 17 LGAs of the state.
Akans alleged that result sheets were not given to electoral officers at the various polling units even as election had commenced.
“We have credible information on irregularities and impunity being perpetrated by the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC).
“Results of the election have already been written by officials of PLASIEC under the supervision of the officials of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Hours after elections have started, result sheets have not been given to the electoral officers at the various Polling Units, and rather, only duplicated written results have been dispatched to the Polling Units.
“This is a heinous plot hatched by the APC in collaboration with PLASIEC, this has further exposed the desperation of the State Government to grab and retain power at all cost,” Akans said.
The Publicity Secretary called on residents to reject what he described as copious “impunity” being perpetrated by the PLASIEC and the APC.
