The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Friday frowned at the

performance of the National Peace Committee, NPC, saying the

committee was powerless under President Muhammadu Buhari’s

alleged desperate government.

It also said such committee will only function within an ambit of

what the sitting government desires.

PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said this when grilled on the

position of the peace committee under the chairmanship of Gen.

Abdullsalam Abubakar, over the persistent electoral controversies,

while briefing newsmen in Abuja.

“If a sitting government refuses to partner with the peace

committee, and chose to act against the rule, the peace committee

has no power to enforce the sitting government which is in

leadership position to act in conjunction with their own principles.

“So, I’m not surprised that the peace committee has somewhat

found itself in the kind of environment it is in.

“It is a different environment from what we had under President

Goodluck Jonathan in 2014 and 2015. We are dealing with people

who have no respect for rules.

“We are dealing with people who are prepared to manoeuvre their

ways just to be in government.”

Ologbondiyan also cautioned the leadership of the Independent

National Electoral Commission, INEC, under the chairmanship of

Yakubu Mahmood against alleged attempts to tamper with and

further cancel already tallied and declared results in 14 more local

government areas in the Bauchi governorship election.

He warned that such alleged unlawful alterations would attract dire


The affected states are: Sokoto, Bauchi, Adamawa, Benue, Kano and

Plateau states.

In his words, “The PDP warns that with the charged atmosphere in

Bauchi state and the level of awareness attained by the people of

the state, any attempt by anybody to touch the already announced

results will attract serious consequences.

“The PDP members and supporters have rallied themselves ready

for a firm resistance.

“Our party already have full information of plots by certain known

top ranking officials of INEC, who have been bribed with huge sums

of money by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to widen the

scope of result cancellation beyond Tafawa Balewa to 14 more

Local Government Areas and hike the number of cancelled votes

from 70,000 to 184, 555.

“To achieve this, INEC has been instructed by the APC to cancel

already declared results in 230 polling units in 15 LGAs, in the state,

cause confusion and pave the way for the APC to manipulate the

March 23 Supplementary elections.

“Seeing that our party, the PDP, and our candidate, Senator Bala

Mohammed, are inevitably coasting to victory, being that Tafawa

Balewa is home to the PDP, the APC is instructing INEC to cancel

elections in more local governments where it plans to manipulate

the processes and allocate fictitious results for the APC at the

March 23 polls.Elections: PDP declares

Abdulsalam’s committee

powerless, warns INEC over alleged

attempt to cancel announced


“The PDP states that such a wicked plot cannot stand, as the people

of Bauchi state have fully rallied themselves for a firm resistance.

“Our party is already in possession of a leaked document from the

Bauchi INEC office, which exposed details of this wicked plot

against the people of Bauchi state.”
