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

The opposition party stated that the PDP’s objection to the use of card readers for the elections shows that it has ulterior motives.

The allegations were made via a statement released by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lai Mohammed.

The statement reads:

“At the press conference we addressed on Wednesday, which rattled the PDP and the President Goodluck Jonathan Administration so much, we listed the conditionalities of the PDP/Jonathan Administration for holding the election: ‘No PVC, No Card Reader, No Jega’ and the fact that the party wants the military deployed to harass and intimidate voters.”

“We mentioned ‘Card Readers’ at least three times during the press conference, and said they (PDP/Jonathan Administration) are doing everything possible to sabotage the machine and prevent its use.”

“Both the spokesmen for the PDP and the Jonathan Campaign Organisation rushed to the press to deny any such ‘reprehensible’ plan. But a few hours later, the spokesman for the campaign organisation told an incredulous country that they would oppose the use of Card Reader, apparently after the spokesmen were overruled by their party.”

 “Obviously, these men are outsiders in their own party and it is now obvious that the opposition knows more about the inner workings of their party than they do.”

“In an apparently-choreographed show, some 15 portfolio political parties called a press conference to also announce that they will oppose the use of the Card Reader, vowing to boycott the elections and use a legal process to prevent the use of the machine.”

The APC added that the recent antics of the PDP show that the ruling party is living in fear of being defeated at the elections.
