APC has raised allegations about what it claims is a plot by PDP in the state to bribe officials of INEC


The Bayelsa State Governorship Campaign Council of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has raised allegations about what it claims is a plot by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) within the state to bribe officers of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forward the November 16 governorship election.

The Alternate Director-General of the marketing campaign organisation, Prof Seiyefa Brisibe, responding to the allegation, mentioned in a press release titled ‘BAYELSA 2019: PDP’s cry over SPOs, is Symptomatic of a Sinking Party’, mentioned the {party} has it on good authority that the PDP had provided the sum of N1 billion to officers of the Commission.

Brisibe, who mentioned the governorship marketing campaign council condemned makes an attempt to compromise the electoral umpire via monetary inducement and upend the needs of the citizens, said that you will need to notify the nationwide and state officers of the INEC that their integrity is at stake and that “any perpetuation of an illegality in connivance with the PDP, which is just a paper tiger, and a rejected party in the State for its twenty years of misrule, will destroy the image of the electoral body.”

The assertion additional reads:

“We, subsequently, urge INEC to resist the temptation of being utilized by the PDP to truncate the electoral course of, particularly with regard to the November 16 governorship polls within the State. It is shameful that the PDP, which claims to be on floor with all of the constructions required to win the elections, has chosen an unlawful path by releasing such a whooping sum to compromise electoral requirements. It is kind of unlucky that the Bayelsa State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is accusing the APC of influencing the appointment of advert hoc workers by the INEC for the November 16th governorship polls within the State.

“That accusation without doubt is symptomatic of a sinking party who in error believes that the electoral umpire cannot on its own recruit its staff for purposes of election but must depend on others to get things done. The PDP has always perpetuated such illegalities to upend the electoral wishes of the people and whenever they fail in their bid to compromise the process by colluding with INEC, they cry foul, which is what they have resorted to again.”

Responding to the accusations, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship marketing campaign organisation, via its Director of Media and Publicity, Dr Jonathan Obuebite, insisted on its demand for the removing of the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Monday Udoh, over allegations that he had already been compromised by and is colluding with the APC to rig the election.
