Bayelsa poll: APC blasts PDP over plans to manipulate supplementary election



Bayelsa poll: APC blasts PDP over plans to manipulate supplementary election

Apparently worried by the desperate plans of manipulating the forthcoming supplementary elections in Bayelsa State, the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state, has again raised alarm over plot by the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), to buy up Permanent Voter cards (PVCs) of eligible voters from Southern Ijaw and other Local Government Areas of the state.

The party also alleged that Dickson’s administration have hatched several plans to manipulate the election with monetary inducement to secure victory, intimation of top civil servants and politicians believed not to have supported him.

In a statement, signed and issued in Yenagoa on Thursday, the state publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Fortune Panebi, said the alleged plans included the delay of salaries in order to use the money in crediting Ex-militants from Delta, Rivers and other neighbouring states to disrupt the elections.

He also noted that the PDP after buying up the voter’s cards will also pay more than Twenty thousand Naira for each vote, adding that huge funds have also being provided by former President Jonathan to buy up PVCs with the hope that they can be used once the card reader is compromised.

The party called on Bayelsans not to play into the selfish hands of Governor Dickson with filthy cash inducement, and at the end abandoned again like he has done in the past four years, noting that the desire change will be achieved through the change mantra party.

The statement further urged credible voters in the state not to mortgage their lives under a party that has no future plans for the state, adding that the Dickson’s administration knows it can never win in a free, fair and credible elections because of its poor record in office.
