FCT Council Elections Cant Be Manipulated – PDP FCT Chairman
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.”
