The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) 24 hours to publish the list of all officials and ad hoc staff that would play any form of role in the forthcoming general elections at all levels.
The national publicity secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, who made the call at a press conference on Monday, January 4, in Abuja said that the list should be published for verification by stakeholders.
Ologbondiyan said that any delay or refusal by INEC to publish the list within 48 hours would be a clear acceptance that the commission had been compromised by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He accused the INEC leadership of plotting to rig the forthcoming general elections for President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He also called on the international community to place the INEC chairman, directors and commissioners in INEC responsible for this election on its watch list in the conduct of the elections.
Ologbondiyan, however, urged all members of the PDP and all meaning Nigerians to vote for the party and protect their votes.
Reacting to the allegations, the chief press secretary to INEC chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that less than two weeks to the general elections, the commission could not afford to be distracted by baseless allegations.
Oyekanmi said that the commission was not a political party and would not allow itself to be dragged into unnecessary controversies at a time like this.
