FCT Council Elections Cant Be Manipulated – PDP FCT Chairman

by on March 19, 2016

The Federal Capital Territory chapter of the People’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has de­clared that the forthcoming area council elections cannot be manipulated by any group or political party.

A release signed by the chapter chairman, Yahaya Yunusa Suleiman, accused the Independent National Electoral Commission of al­lowing itself to be intimated and cajoled by the All Pro­gressives Congress (APC) to shift the polls already slated for March 19 to April 9.

Suleiman said the com­mission has no reason at all to postpone the election, de­scribing the reason given by the body as ‘flimsy excuse’ saying there was nothing cogent in its reasoning.

“The Electoral Act states that the commission can postpone an election only if the reason for the post­ponement is cogent and viable.

“It is unfortunate that the commission has allowed it­self to be intimated and ca­joled by the All Progressives Congress.”
