Nigeria News – Desire To Rescue Nigeria From ‘Clueless’ APC Government Begins Tomorrow (Tuesday) – Secondus
From Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged Nigerian voters to troop out to their various polling booths to check their names as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) displays voters register at all polling units across Nigeria.
The National Chairman of PDP said that the desire to rescue Nigeria from the ‘clueless’ APC government would be meaningless if everything pertaining to voting is not sorted out.
In a statement by Ike Abonyi, the Secondus’s media adviser, the National Chairman said the essence of the display as stipulated by the electoral act is to ensure that no voter is disenfranchised and this is the first step to avoid it.
He said that cross-checking and confirming the details ahead of the election is a mechanism put in place to reduce attempts by the electoral umpires to manipulate the system by saying that the names of voters are not available.
“By cross-checking and re-cross checking, the voters wittingly would have begun the battle to frustrate rigging of the election.
The National Chairman of PDP asked voters who noticed issues with their particulars to cry out loudly immediately by going to the electoral centres to complain about the issue in order to get it rectified.
Secondus said that part of the rigging strategy of the APC working in agreement with some INEC staff is to doctor voter’s lists in the opponent’s strongholds to reduce their electoral advantage.
He said that the unanimity by the majority of Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling APC should be chased out of our political lives would have no meaning if we are not ready with the necessary weapon (our PVC) to do that.
“Please note that if you have a PVC and your name is not on the register, you are as good as a person who has gone into a contest he did not register for and expecting a positive result.
“If your team is going into a match you are sure you are better than your opponent and you are not sure of the neutrality of the referee, you need to play well win fair and square and block any room for manipulation”.
The National Chairman of PDP said that Nigerian voters should not take anything for granted if their desire to rescue democracy is to be realized.
