PDP denies plans to rig Lagos polls

The Peoples Democratic Party has dismissed claims by the All Progressives Congress that it was planning to rig the governorship election in the state.
In as statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Olisa Metuh, in Abuja on Friday the PDP said the claim by the APC that the meeting President Goodluck Jonathan had with the PDP candidate in the state on Thursday was aimed at rigging the election was not true.
“We totally condemn this unwarranted and unnecessary tension being created by the APC in Lagos State a day before the elections. The APC must desist from its propaganda, lies and false alarms especially bearing in mind that it did not win the Presidential election on account of such. Nigerians are no longer in the mood for such politics as they have since moved ahead in celebration of the deepening of our democracy by the PDP-led administration.
“The PDP successfully nurtured democracy in the last sixteen years with attendant benefits to the people. Unfortunately, concerns are already heightening that the APC may not sustain this legacy given its disreputable disposition to national issues and ceaseless resort to propaganda and deceit,” PDP stated.
Metuh said the PDP was aware that the APC leader and President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari , visited about 12 states meeting and campaigning for his party’s candidates and wondered why the APC should be worried about President Jonathan’s meeting with PDP candidates in Lagos.
