The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State have asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to come to equity with clean hands and explain the mystery surrounding the collection of temporary voters card by Gov. Yahaya Bello.
Gov. Bello was issued voters card by INEC yesterday in Okene.
In a statement issued by Dickson Achadu, Director Research and Documentation, the party said the governor is culpable, having registered twice, once in Abuja and another one in Kogi State Government House.
Achadu said INEC must come clear with what is happening and the circumstances surrounding the governor’s double registration, most especially that the governor has been dragged to Court.
He said INEC must reassure the Kogi State citizens of it readiness to conduct a free, fair and credible poll in 2019, as the governor’s action is making it to lose confidence in the electoral commission.
“It is unimaginable that having confessed to not being able to transfer his PVC before 2015 and the governor’s second registration held in Kogi Government House, Lokoja, INEC can still participate in the drama that took place at INEC office Okene yesterday,” he said.
