The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has responded to the recent outburst of Elder Godsday Orubebe, its agent at the collation centre for election results.

Orubebe caused a scene at the Abuja centre after he accused Attahiru Jega, the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of bias.

In response to the incident, PDP publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh stated that the party had directed its agents to conduct themselves ‘within democratic norms.’

"In a democratic process, we must follow democratic channels. Yesterday we questioned the opposition party about certain things they had done to challenge states. We expect our members to follow the same process as well,”Metuh said while speaking to Channels TV.

“This party has a tradition of decency and will follow democratic channels to lay complaints. Ours is to protest and make our voices heard through recognized channels and wait for democratic process to be followed. We directed our members that everyone should conduct himself within democratic norms and principles. That is all we have to say about that,” he added.

Orubebe based his complaint against Jega on the fact that the INEC Chairman had addressed the APC’s petition concerning the elections in Rivers State but didn’t address the PDP’s regarding seven other states.
