We’re afraid, 2019 elections may not be credible — PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party has said there are signs that the 2019 elections may lack credibility.

Apart from this, the opposition party said the ruling All Progressives Congress administration was not ready to conduct free, fair and credible elections.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, stated this in Abuja on Wednesday while playing host to a United Nations delegation which paid him a courtesy visit at the party’s national secretariat.

Speaking with the delegation, Secondus said the conduct of elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office had shown that the 2019 polls might not be credible.

He said the majority of the elections conducted since the PDP left office in 2015 had ended up in reruns, adding that this was an indication that the commission was not ready to do the biddings of the electorate.

Secondus alleged that most of the reruns were as a result of the unpopularity of the APC, but regretted that even at that, the ruling party was usually bent on winning the elections.

He said, “We were in power as a party for 16 years to be precise, we deepened democracy with our actions. In the last general elections of 2015, we lost and conceded defeat, without attempting to go to court.
