The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yekini Nabena has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of hiring a former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, as an ‘election consultant’ as part of last-minute strategy to win the forthcoming polls at all costs.
According to him, the PDP’s plan is to use INEC officials who remain loyal to the former INEC Chairman and under his payroll to rig next month’s presidential election.
Speaking to journalists on Sunday in Abuja, Nabena declined to disclose the name of the former INEC chairman.
He, however, challenged the PDP and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to deny the allegation.
The APC deputy spokesman equally charged relevant authorities to investigate the veracity of his allegation.
His words: “Following the exposure of the PDP’s initial plot to use Russian hackers to compromise INEC servers, the PDP has now hired a former INEC Chairman as an election consultant. This INEC Chairman was notorious for rigging elections for the PDP over the years.
“The plan is to use INEC officials who remain loyal to the former INEC Chairman and under his payroll to compromise the system from within.” Nabena said.
