The federal government has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic Party of laying the groundwork for a constitutional crisis.

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said in a statement in Kwara state, that the “PDP is unleashing its talking heads including Buba Galadima, Osita Chidoka and Femi Fani-Kayode on the public space to claim victory from Saturday’s election, even when INEC is yet to announce the result.

He said the party was hatching plans to truncate the electoral process and render the February 23 elections inconclusive, in order for them to trigger a constitutional crisis and push for an interim government.

Mohammed said by usurping the role of INEC through the announcement of the result, the PDP has violated the Electoral Act and should face very serious consequences.
