2019: Allegation by PDP of secret polling units in favour of APC a big lie - INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has reacted to an allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that it has secretly colluded with the APC to establish 30,000 polling units in some parts of the country in order to rig the 2019 general elections in favour of the ruling party.

INEC Director of Publicity and Voter Education, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, said that the allegations were all false.

Osaze-Uzzi said “everybody knows the number of polling units in the country being published by INEC.

“The truth of the matter is that INEC cannot create illegal polling units because the law gives it the power to create polling units.

“If the Commission has the power to create polling units, you cannot say it has created illegal polling units. We are not aware of such units and it is not true.

“However, any time we create additional polling units, citizens and stakeholders including political parties, media and civil society organisations would be informed.”
