The People’s Democratic Party, PDP says it has resolved to petition the United Nations over the role allegedly played by the Nigerian military in the February 23rd Presidential and National Assembly elections.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan stated this while addressing newsmen after the party’s expanded caucus meeting in Abuja. He said that the party would also report the role of the military to other global democratic institutions.
It decried the alleged militarisation of South-South ahead of Saturday’s governorship and state House of Assembly’s elections.
PDP National Chairman Uche Secondus, who also spoke, said the decision of the party to seek legal redress on the just concluded presidential election was informed by the alleged rigging of the polls.
Secondus alleged that not only were electorate harassed, the ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC were also intimidated to rig the elections.
