Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Monday cautioned Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to bend the rules to smuggle in candidates from All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State.

“Whereas legally, all congresses and related processes for election of candidates for various offices for the 2019 general elections ended yesterday (Sunday), APC in Zamfara State has not conducted any congress, and by the provision of the law, it has no candidates in all the elections.

“PDP is aware of a clandestine meeting between topmost officials of INEC and Zamfara State government, where INEC was instructed to manipulate the system and bend the rules to accommodate APC,” PDP said in a statement.

PDP warned INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, over the attempt to manipulate the processes and use underhand measures to liberate APC from the cul de sac it plunged itself into in Zamfara State.

“We insist that the laws guiding our elections must be upheld as PDP will never accept anything short of that.

“Finally, PDP wants APC and INEC to know that our party is at alert regarding all electoral processes in line with our avowed determination to dismantle APC’s rigging machinery in the 2019 general elections.”
