Ahead of 2019 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reported the Independent National Electoral Commission to United Nations (UN) Election Assessment Team over its fear that the commission may not conduct free and fair polls.
PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, told the UN team during a courtesy call that INEC is under the grip of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government.
He explained that since APC government came on board, if the election does not favour its candidates, INEC would conduct a rerun, adding that what the “government owns this country is to conduct free and fair elections.”
Secondus said that free and fair elections would guarantee the unity of the country, adding that the 2019 elections would either make or mar Nigeria.
He said: “This visit is timely because of the unfolding event in our country and the political situation, I believe this is the time for intervention. We have fear since APC came on board, if election is not in their favour there is a rerun.
“There must be election that is free and fair and when there is no free and fair election it breed crisis and we are witnessing what is happening in Kenya.
“What is happening in the West should happen here. There is great fear whether INEC will conduct free and fair elections,” Secondus stated.
Earlier, the leader of the UN team, Mr. Serge Kubwimana, said that they were meeting with political parties on how to support them.
