PDP Threatens To Boycott 2019 General Elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has threatened to boycott the 2019 general elections if INEC and security agencies do not show neutrality during the polls.

The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus made this known on Thursday afternoon in Abuja,  when a combined delegation of the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) paid him a visit at the party’s national secretariat.

“We are still contemplating on whether we will participate in the 2019 elections or not. We are yet to take a decision on this.”

“We are not sure that the security agencies and INEC would be impartial and transparent. In the Ekiti elections, there were instances our party agents’ tags were removed and given to the APC agents.”

“There were clear cases of manipulation, ballot snatching and harassment of our party agents,” Secondus said.
