The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has expressed concern over what it described as sudden affection between the All Progressives Congress, APC and Attahiru Jega, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in recent time.
The APC’s huge interest in Jega’s stay in office ahead of the March 28 and April 11 general elections was more than “curious,” Olisa Metuh, PDP’s national publicity Secretary said on Saturday.
Metuh said the opposition party’s show of “undue” interest on Jega raises a lot of questions.
“We ask, is there any underlining issue or arrangement between APC and Prof. Jega which the opposition is hell-bent to protect, informing its anxiety and apprehension towards his stay in office?
“Undoubtedly, the frenzy, hysteria and spate with which the APC has been inventing stories regarding Prof. Jega’s stay in office even when nothing suggests that such was on the table, raise a lot of issues.
“While it is noted that the APC is a party of one week, one lie, we in the PDP look beneath the surfaces to the deeper issues propelling the lies. We therefore challenge the APC to come out clean and tell Nigerians the real reason behind their false alarms and uncontrolled nervousness regarding Prof. Jega ahead of the 2015 general elections.
“Finally, we wish to remind the leadership of the INEC that Nigerians are monitoring its activities and series of unfolding political events ahead of the elections, and will not accept anything less than the conduct of credible, free and fair general elections come March 28 and April 11, 2015,” the party said.Follow Us on Social Media
