The National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, Monday disclosed that the party’s legal team for the presidential election will file its petition today.
This was as he accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the security agencies of compromise and direct interference in the presidential and National Assembly elections held last Saturday February 23.
Secondus said this during the PDP expanded National Caucus meeting held in Abuja.
In his words, “PDP may file petition today or tomorrow. The process is on. Our lawyers have been assembled. And nobody will stop us”.
The National chairman also cautioned those celebrating what he described as illegality, manipulation and criminality, to have a rethink.
He warned that such vices are likely to boomerang and consume them.
He said, “I want to use this opportunity to call on those who are celebrating illegality, manipulation and criminality to have a rethink. This is because such evil may boomerang to consume them”.
Further, Secondus urged INEC, security agencies to ensure that the alleged violence, manipulation and suppression of voters in the PDP strongholds on February 23 poll, do not repeat in the governorship and State Assembly polls come March 9.
In his words, “INEC compromised during the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections. Besides, the security agencies were directly involved in the election and voting process against the provision of the constitution.
