PDP Rejects Redeployment Of REC By INEC Barely A Week To Elections

The People's Democratic Party PDP has rejected the move by the leadership of the INEC to redeploy Resident Electoral Commissioners (REC), barely a week to the February 16 Presidential election. The PDP also said, they are already aware that INEC is acting on the directives of the Buhari Presidency and the APC which have been mounting pressure on the commission to deploy some compromised & pliable RECs to certain critical states in order to manipulate results for APC.   The PDP therefore rejects this ignoble scheme and charges INEC not to enmesh the election into avoidable crisis, as the planned redeployment will be vehemently rejected.
