Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was doing everything possible to rig the 2019 general elections in favor of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party, however, backed the National Assembly's position on election sequence, saying there was nothing wrong with the new order where the presidential election would be conducted last.
Speaking at a meeting of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) on Thursday in Abuja, Uche Secondus said the opposition party would use its strength to resist any form of rigging in 2019.
"We want Nigeria to know that INEC is doing everything to rig elections in 2019. It happened in 2015 and we will not allow it to happen in 2019. Why are they registering under-age Nigerians?"
"We are determined and have resolved to resist all the illegalities in this country. This is the right time for those who left our party to come back. The APC is not a party; they have failed in virtually all sectors."
"Today, Nigerians are not safe; there are killings here and there. This government is misleading Nigerians that some of the 94 kidnapped girls in Yobe are rescued, but we got a reliable information that they have not been rescued. We ask Buhari to ensure that our girls are rescued," Secondus said.
