The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of planning to rig the Lagos State governorship elections.

The APC stated further that President Goodluck Jonathan arrived unannounced in the state on Thursday, April 9, 2015, in order to spearhead the plot.

The comments were made by APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed in a statement released on Friday, April 10.

Mohammed also said that Jonathan held a closed-door meeting with PDP governorship candidate,  Jimi Agbaje, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs II, Musiliu Obanikoro and the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Gani Adams in order to achieve the aim.

The statement reads:

“The meeting in Lagos was aimed at devising a strategy to distribute the fake result sheets that were packed into the SUV, which will be free to move around (because of its plate number) despite the restriction on vehicular movement during the elections.”

“It is sad that the same President, who conceded defeat in the presidential election and then followed up with a speech in which he said he would like his ‘legacy’ of free and fair elections to endure, is the one who is presiding over a desperate move to steal the people’s votes on Saturday.”

“How can President Jonathan’s ‘legacy’ endure when one of his last acts in office is a seeming vengeance mission to lead his party to capture Lagos, because the PDP sees the state as a cash cow that they can milk to death, with the party’s gravy train at the federal level having derailed?”

“Lagosians, please come out en masse on Saturday and vote in a peaceful manner for a candidate of your choice. Say no to coercion, defend your votes and repudiate all architects of divisiveness and rigging.”

The PDP however dismissed has however dismissed the allegations of rigging levelled against it saying that the APC was only afraid of being defeated at the polls.
