A group known as the PDP Integrity Vanguard, has expressed fears that the database of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, would have been compromised by some unscrupulous persons, and therefore, expressed doubts over the outcome of the results of the general elections.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, leader of the Group, Senator Aniete Okon, said recent discoveries by the PDP Integrity Vanguard appeared to provide sufficient proof that the allegations of cloning of INEC database could have been true after all.
Okon, who called for the immediate forensic examination of the INEC database, revealed how the Permanent Voter Card of one Mrs. Effiong, whose biometrics was captured by INEC in Gwarimpa, FCT, was cloned in Akwa Ibom State.
He expressed doubt in the commission’s commitment to conduct a transparent election, following the myriad of defects and failings apparent in the process.
Okon said, “The entire gamut of INEC’s logistics and the technologies it has deployed so far have generated public anxiety in recent times.
“This is not without reason. Nigerians have been apprehensive over the myriad of defects and failings apparent in INEC’s processes, which lend credence to and underscores INEC’s persisting unpreparedness, quite contrary to earlier claims by INEC that it was ready as of February 14, 2015 to conduct elections.
“INEC truly might have been ‘ready’ as a matter of fact. The question however is, what manner and quality of elections would INEC have delivered given that it has become clear that at that level of readiness, nearly 50 per cent of legitimate voters would have been disenfranchised for no fault of theirs?
“More worrisome are the various discoveries that our group has made in the last week. Those discoveries appear to reinforce our earlier position in which we established a nexus between these apparent imperfections and the clamour by the All Progressives Congress for elections to go on, however, unprepared INEC was at the time”.
PDP Asks Buhari To Stop Killing Of #EndSARS Protesters Across Nigeria
This was contained in a statement titled “EndSARS- Lekki Massacre,” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, late on Tuesday.
Ologbodiyan said, “The Peoples Democratic Party, condemns in very strong terms, the killing of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos as well as other parts of our country.
“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.
