BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), Restoration Campaign Organization in Bayelsa has uncovered plot by the All Progressives Congress, (APC) to mislead the innocent voters through the spread of falsehood and propaganda particularly people of Southern Ijaw local government area of the state as regards the January 9, 2016 rescheduled election and the position of the Independent National electoral Commission, (INEC).
The latest of APC misdemeanor was concocted at a meeting held on Suturday at the instance of their embattled governorship candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva ahead of the poll.
The Director General of the RCO Hon Fred Agbedi told newsmen in Yenagoa that contrary to the INEC position that the rescheduled election will hold in Southern Ijaw and 101 units across the state where the results were cancelled, the APC is now spreading blatant lies that the Electoral Body has upturned the already declared result which placed the PDP at vantage position with over 33,000 votes.
Agbedi said the APC’s current gimmicks is to confused the people of Southern Ijaw that the over 33, 000 votes that separated the party and the PDP no longer stand and therefore they will have the upper hand on January 9.
He explained that during the stakeholders meeting in Abuja on Thursday which had in attendance all the majority candidates, party chairmen and the leadership of INEC, It was made very clearly that except Southern ijaw and 101 units where results were not collated, all other results remained valid and wondered why the APC selling the cheap lies but added he is not surprise that it is their stock in trade.
The RCO asked Bayelsans to ignore the sponsored falsehood of the APC as it is clearly that the security arrangement arising from the stakeholders meeting has put them in a tight corner where they cannot rig just as they did shamelessly on December 6, in southern ijaw, stressing that there is no iota of truth in the APC’s claim.
Agbedi who is a member of the house of Representatives also asked the APC and its circle of confused members to stop blaming the INEC REC in the State, Barito kpangi for cancelling the election, saying it was a collective decision of the Commission why emphasizing that if it is candidate could only managed through the rigging and thuggery to win a single local government out of seven declared, then they should equally expect a tsunami defeat in Southern Ijaw in three weeks’ time.
