The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that fresh facts have confirmed that elements of the federal government and the All Progressive Congress (APC) have been sabotaging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in a well-orchestrated plot to engineer a staggered presidential election, contrary to what the Presidency and the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, said.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement Sunday said that the reason for this was that President Muhammadu Buhari was determined to have a staggered election where he could use security agencies to subvert the will of the people at the polls.

According to the PDP, these APC elements in INEC engineered actions that affected the distribution and delivery of INEC’s sensitive materials to designated locations, thereby frustrating the electoral process.
