2019 General Elections: EU Reports Vindicated US-PDP

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that the fresh revelation in the European Union (EU) report has further vindicated the PDP and millions of Nigerians, in its position that the February 23 Presidential election was rigged to favour President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This is according to a statement by PDP’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The party in its communique stated that  the revelations of “manipulations” as detailed in the EU report further validates queries by majority of Nigerians that President Buhari was not validly returned for a second term in office.

PDP said that the revelation shows the world that the opposition party has not been crying wolf in insisting that the election was out-rightly rigged with the cancellation of millions of PDP votes, alteration of results and allocation of fictitious votes to the APC.

The statement partly reads: “Nigerians are still in shock over the revelations by EU of how about 2.8 million votes were deliberately cancelled without sufficient accountability and how several returning officers gave no reason for the cancellations.

 

The report also bared how figures on result forms did not reconcile, how result forms were not publicly posted, how result forms and smart card readers were not packed in tamper-evident envelops as required, in addition to how the APC administration used security forces to intimidate voters, aid violence against our members and muscled votes for the APC

“The PDP therefore commends the EU for the courage in exposing the evils committed by the APC and INEC in the 2019 general elections.

“Moreover, the report has further reinforced the confidence of millions of Nigerians in our collective expectation of justice in the quest to retrieve our stolen Presidential mandate at the tribunal.

“The PDP insists that those in INEC, who perpetrated such crime against our nation, in sabotaging the sanctity of our electoral processes to frustrate the choice of Nigerians in a presidential election, must be brought to book and made to face the wrath of the law.

“Our party therefore urges Nigerians to remain calm as the truth about the election continues to unfold while justice takes its course on the matter”.
