By Valentine Amanze

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare PDP winner in Osun State's Saturday general election to avert national crisis.

  Secondus said that the PDP would not accept anything less than its deserved victory because the party won the election clearly and unambiguously.

  He alleged that “after INEC robbed the party of victory in Ekiti State and said they should go to the tribunal, now in Osun after the party won glaringly they have concocted another story of inconclusive just to pacify their pay masters.”

  The PDP chairman, through his media aide,  Ike Abonyi, said that the Chairman of INEC Prof, Yakubu Mahmood, should be held responsible for brewing crisis in the country ahead of 2019 in his greed to satisfy the agenda of his appointees.

 Secondus also warned, “If what they did in Ekiti and Osun states elections are rehearsals of what they are planning for 2019, there may be no Nigeria and INEC and APC should be held responsible.”

 He drew the attention of the nation's security apparatchik to the possible threat to peace and oneness of this country by the brazing rigging of elections by a supposedly independent electoral umpire.

 The PDP chairman however wondered what President Muhammadu Buhari who left the country to U.S. for the United Nation's general assembly would be telling democratic community when he could not conduct state governorship election.

 "What other evidence do the democratic watchers and security agencies need to establish obvious bias from INEC when the commission's administrative officer, who was caught destroying result sheets in Ayedade Local Government Area where over a thousand votes belonging to PDP were removed, confirmed acting on the instruction of his superior officer?

 "What will President Buhari be telling democratic world at the UN when back home he has brutalized all agents of democracy and has been unable to conduct a simple state bye election?  he said.

  Secondus described as shameless the INEC taking instructions from the APC and declared the result inconclusive when it was obvious that the PDP candidate won the election.

  Besides, the chairman commended the  people of Osun State for their dexterity and vigilance that led to the arrest of the fraudulent INEC official as he called on the international community to watch closely and condemn the electoral commission for its lack of neutrality ahead of 2019 general election.
