The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to rig the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Lagos State.

The PDP also said that the APC is planning to unleash violence if its governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode loses the election.

The allegations were made on Thursday, April 9, 2015 by the Lagos PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani.

Gani said that the APC was planning to use some persons who would impersonate National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members, security agents and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) personnel to rig the elections.

“These persons will wear the uniforms of youth corps members, various security agents and be present as official INEC electoral officers. The APC has concluded plans to deploy these impersonators to identified polling units where the official INEC officers, security agents and corps members will be compromised to concede their functions,” Gani alleged.

The governorship and State House of Assembly elections are slated to hold across Nigeria on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
