The Peoples Democratic Party,PDP has rejected a court order stopping the Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC from resuming collation of result of Bauchi state governorship election.

The party stated this in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday, barred INEC from resuming collation and announcement of the election result.

Justice Inyang Ekwo issued the order following an ex parte application filed by the All Progressives Congress,APC and Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi state.

Ologbondiyan described the order as part of the plot by the APC and some compromised elements in INEC to escalate crisis and derail the country’s electoral process.

ThePDP National Publicity Secretary cautioned that if what it described as desperate underhand measure to halt electoral processes is not checked, the country’s hard earned democracy would fail.
