Opposition Peoples Democratic Party says history will not be kind to the ruling All Progressives Congress for allegedly burning offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission nationwide.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this in a statement on Tuesday titled, ‘PDP Insists that APC Is Behind Burning of INEC Offices…Urges IGP To Question, Place APC Leaders on Watch List’.
Attacks on INEC offices especially in the South-East have been concerning of late with the chairman of the electoral commission, Mahmood Yakubu, describing the situation as a national emergency.
The PDP in the statement said,
“The PDP restates its position that the APC has been promoting acts of violence including burning of INEC offices in other to build up an emergency situation and frustrate the smooth conduct of the 2023 general elections.
“It is despicable that having realized that it has no place in the 2023 election, given its abysmal failure in governance, APC leaders are seeking to set our country ablaze and truncate our hard-earned democracy.
“The PDP invites Nigerians to note the failure of the APC and its leaders to forcefully condemn this clear assault on our frontline institution of democracy. This is also as the APC administration has failed to take decisive steps to protect INEC facilities from assailants.
“Our party wants the APC to know that May 29, 2023 date is sacrosanct for it to leave office, free our nation from its stranglehold and fizzle out from our political firmament.
